    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    The Sagittarius dwarf galaxy (Sgr) is a satellite of the Galaxy, located behind the Galactic Bulge. It is the nearest extra-galactic system, at a distance of 25 kpc. Sgr contains three known planetary nebulae (PNe) (two from Zijlstra & Walsh 1996, and one new identification). Together with the single PN in Fornax, these are the only PNe known in dwarf spheroidal galaxies. © 2006 Springer.
