The average number of stars in a dwarf galaxy is several billion.
A dwarf galaxy [See Link] is a small galaxy composed of up to several billion stars, a small number compared to our own Milky Way's 200-400 billion stars
The dwarf planet Pluto is 4.67 billion miles away from the planet Earth at their most distant point. Pluto is also 3.6 billion miles away from the sun at their closest point.
Yes. Some dwarf galaxies do contain 1 billion stars.
No, they are different. There may be a billion other galaxies.

What is the average number of stars in a dwarf galaxy since it contains a few million to several billion stars?
The average number of stars in a dwarf galaxy since it contains a few million to several billion stars with as few as ten million (107) stars.
Approximately 1 billion (1,000,000,000)
There is no specific definition, but a dwarf galaxy is normally a small galaxy comprised of up to several billion stars.
The Kubasik Galaxy does not exist in real life. The nearest galaxy to Earth, Andromeda is about 2.5 million light years away. The nearest dwarf galaxy, Canis Major Dwarf, is a mere 0.025 million light years away
Messier 31 or M31 or the Andromeda Galaxy is the nearest large spiral galaxy to Earth. It is commonly assumed wrongly to be the closest galaxy to our own but other smaller galaxies are closer. In fact it is the 35th nearest galaxy to us. The Canus Major Dwarf Galaxy is thought to be closest at 42,000ly from the galactic core and 25,000ly from earth. It is infact closer to the solar system than the… Read More

The Earth is inside the Milky Way Galaxy. The closest other known galaxies are the two "clouds of Magellan", which are small galaxies that orbit the Milky way. The closest other large galaxy, about the size of the Milky Way, is the Andromeda Galaxy. Andromeda is the nearest galaxy to Earth. Answer: We are in the Milky Way galaxy which makes it closest to Earth. After that we have the dwarf galaxies Canis Major Dwarf… Read More
The nearest neighbor galaxy to the Milky Way Galaxy, where Earth is located, is the Canis Major Dwarf galaxy. The closest spiral galaxy is the Andromeda galaxy.
The nearest galaxy, Andromeda is about 2.5 million light years away. The nearest dwarf galaxy, Canis Major Dwarf, is a mere 0.025 million light years away
It is the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy. It is around 50 000 light-years away from Earth.
The MACS0647-JD galaxy (full name CZC2013 MACS0647-JD1; one of the gravitationally lensed galaxies in the MACS J0647+7015 galaxy cluster) is a dwarf galaxy 13,300 million light-years (redshift of 10.7) from Earth in the Camelopardalis constellation, and is 600 light-years in diameter (about 170 times smaller than the Milky Way), and contains about 1 billion stars (1 percent of the Milky Way's stars). In 13.3 billion years from now, it will be a fully-formed galaxy.
You might as well say, closest to the Earth, or to the Solar System - since distances within the Solar System are insignificant compared to the distances to other star systems. The closest star system is Toliman, also known as Rigil Kentaurus, or Alpha Centauri. The closest known galaxy is a dwarf galaxy, the Canis Maior Dwarf Galaxy - a satellite of our galaxy. You might as well say, closest to the Earth, or to… Read More
In about 5 billion years our Sun will expand engulfing mercury Venus and the Earth. After a few more Billion years it will shrink down to a brown dwarf and remain in this state. Eventually Our Milky way galaxy will cartwheel into our nearest neighbouring galaxy Andromeda and the result of this collision will ,perhaps, use the elements of our solar system to make a new one .We do not know
Our milky way galaxy has several nearby dwarf galaxies. The closest of these is thought to be the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, around 25,000 lightyears away and containing around a billion stars. Andromeda is the closest large galaxy, comparable in size to our own, yet over 2 million lightyears away.
The size of galaxies varies greatly. Astronomers calculate that our Milky Way galaxy has between 100 and 400 billion stars. It is a rather large galaxy. Most of the 170 billion galaxies are however smaller, dwarf galaxies with a few billion stars each.
Since MDC2010 1721 is a dwarf galaxy 13.1 billion light years from us, it will take 13.1 billion years for the message to reach its intended designation (and an additional 13.1 billion years for any reply from an alien civilization).
The HCM 6A galaxy (one of the galaxies in the Abell 370 galaxy cluster) is a dwarf LAE galaxy 12,800 million light-years (redshift of 6.56) from Earth in the Cetus constellation, and its estimated diameter is 10,000 light-years (about 10 times smaller than the Milky Way), and contains about 1 billion stars (1 percent of the Milky Way's stars).
The Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy is classified as an irregular galaxy. As the name suggests, it is also a dwarf galaxy.
Our Solar System contains 1 star - the Sun. The smallest Galaxy - a dwarf galaxy, contains around a few billion stars.
This would be Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, discovered in November 2003, which is approximately 25,000 light years from the Earth.
Sagittarius Dwarf, discovered in 1994, mare than 70,000 light years away from earth.
The closest galaxy to our galaxy the Sagittarius galaxy but its Dwarf Galaxy, Andromeda is the Complete Galaxy and yet classified as the Galaxy which is closest to our galaxy. Facts : There are 12 Dwarf galaxies and 1 complete galaxy within the distance of 500,000 light years. Andromeda Galaxy is moving towards our galaxy at the speed 300,000 Kilometers per hour, but its so far that i would take millions of year to have… Read More

Far outside our solar system at 8.7 billion miles we might find the heliosheath. This lies beyond the termination shock, which is the boundary formed where the solar wind meets the interstellar medium. Use the link below to verify facts, see diagrams, and learn more. While 8.7 billion miles is a lot on our Earthly scale, it's nothing on an interstellar or galactic scale. It's still well inside the Milky Way galaxy. In fact, the… Read More
It depends on how you define "galaxy." There are several "dwarf" galaxies orbiting the Milky Way; I'm not sure which of them is closest. The nearest galaxy of comparable size is the Andromeda Galaxy, which is slightly larger (but perhaps not quite as massive) as the Milky Way. It's about 2 million light years distant.
The Carina Dwarf Spheroidal is a dwarf galaxy in the Carina constellation.
There are two galaxies refereed to as the Sagittarius dwarf galaxy. Sagittarius dwarf Elliptically galaxy: is an elliptical loop shaped satellite galaxy of the Milky Way Galaxy. Sagittarius dwarf Irregular Galaxy: Lies about 3.4 million light-years away and is not within the Milky Way Galaxy.
A Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy. Or more precisely, an elliptical looped satellite galaxy.
The closest galaxy to Earth is of course the one we are in - the Milky Way, which has several dwarf galaxies in orbit around it considered part of the local group. The nearest to earth is the Canis Major Overdensiy (or galaxy) at about 25,000 lght years distance, although its status as a galaxy is in dispute. The next nearest is the Sagitarius dwarf elliptical galaxy at about 70,000 light years away. There are… Read More
no one knows for sure, but it is estimated to be about 1000 billion (1000 000 000 000)
The Milky Way has somewhere between 100 and 400 billion stars; most of those are red dwarf stars.
yes i dont know what the dwarf your talking about
Our Sun is about 4.57 billion years old. About half way through it's life. The Sun will slowly turn into a red giant in about 4.5 billion year and about two billion years later, it will shed it's outer layers and become a white dwarf. For the Earth, this means that when the Sun turns into a red giant, the Suns envelope will expand until it nearly touches the Earth. For life on Earth, it's… Read More
Andromeda Galaxy. However, there are also a number of 'Dwarf galaxies', which are rather closer, and are distant 'satellite' galaxies to the Milky Way. The two most prominent are better known as the large and small Magellanic clouds.
It is the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy. The Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy is the second closest to the milky way.
