NGC 4449 is an endearing irregular dwarf galaxy showing a rectangular shape. With a size of Large Magellanic Cloud, it is located just 12.5 millions light years away and belongs to the Hunting Dog galaxies cloud, not far from our Local Group. It undergoes an intense episode of young stars formation that appears clearly to the observer by kind of nodosities.
