Irregular galaxies have no particular shape they are among the smallest galaxies and are full of gas and dust having a lot of gas and dust means that these galaxies have a lot of star formation going on within them. Galaxies are classified into three main types: spiral galaxies, elliptical galaxies, and irregular galaxies spiral galaxies, such as the milky way, consist of a flat disk with a bulging center and surrounding spiral arms. The estimates of the number of dwarf irregulars and dwarf ellipticals are based on the proportions of these types of galaxies irregular galaxies positions on.

Spiral vs elliptical galaxies galaxies are massive collections of stars they also contain large interstellar gas clouds known as nebulae these large.
Galaxies that do not fit into either the spiral or elliptical classes are called irregular galaxies irregular galaxies, such as m82 (right), have a wide variety of shapes and characteristics. An irregular galaxy is a galaxy that does not have a distinct regular shape, unlike a spiral or an elliptical galaxy irregular galaxies do not fall into any of the regular classes of the hubble sequence, and they are often chaotic in appearance, with neither a nuclear bulge nor any trace of spiral arm structure. Size, mass and typesize would be length, width in lightyearsmass is usually of lesser interest but is very important in the motion of the galaxythe main types of galaxies are irregular, elliptical and spiral (like our own milky way.
Galaxy classification galaxies show a vast bulge strength and arm characteristics for is present and on whether the structure is spheroidal or more irregular. Irregular galaxies are simply all the galaxies which are not spiral or elliptical they can look like anything and have many different characteristics many irregular. What are characteristics of an irregular galaxy irregular galaxies also contain abundant amounts of gas and dust what is the age of stars in the irregular galaxy. Galaxy characteristics the student is shown a venn diagram intersecting all three types of galaxies (elliptical, spiral, and irregular) and is asked to determine where certain characteristics would fall in the diagram.
