Caption: Same but not Dark galaxy Dragonfly 44 (pictured) is a ghostly behemoth, weighing about as much as the Milky Way-roughly 1 trillion times the mass of the sun-but with a mere 1 percent of our galaxy's stars (stellar mass comparison at right).
The existence of this low-mass dark galaxy is just within the bounds we expect if the Universe is composed of dark matter which has a low temperature.

Known as Malin 1, the dark galaxy is located in the direction of the famous cluster of galaxies in the constellation Virgo, but it does not belong to that cluster, and lies in fact some distance beyond it--715 million light-years from earth--in one of the recently discovered voids of space, where few or no galaxies appear to be.
