LEGUS: Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey

Project: Research project

Project Details


II. Program Summary The LEGUS Program is awarded 154 orbits in Cycle 21 to build therst HST UV Atlas of 51 nearby star-forming galaxies, carefully selected to span the full range of morphology, star formation rate (SFR), mass, metallicity, internal structure, and interaction state found in the local Universe. In combination with archival and new optical UBVI WFC3/ACS data, the requested WFC3 UV images are key for deriving accurate recent (
