By analyzing the data from the Dark Energy Survey (DES), an international team of astronomers has conducted a search for nearby faint dwarf galaxies.

In result, they detected three such objects around the Sculptor Galaxy.

Containing up to several billion stars, dwarf galaxies are difficult to detect due to their low luminosity, low mass and small size, and are often found as companions to larger galaxies.
