Mission Overview

Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS)

The PHANGS program is building the first dataset to enable the multi-phase, multi-scale study of star formation across nearby spiral galaxies.  The foundation of PHANGS has been built with large surveys with Hubble, JWST, ALMA and VLT/MUSE.
Hubble and JWST imaging from 0.2 to 21 microns for 19 galaxies with ALMA CO(2-1) mapping and VLT/MUSE optical IFU spectroscopy has been obtained through three programs:
Hubble and JWST imaging for an additional 55 galaxies with PHANGS ALMA CO observations are being obtained through the following programs:

Data Notebooks

PHANGS Datasets and Multiscale Stellar Associations

Author:  Kirsten Larson

Using the galaxy NGC 1566 as an example, this notebook shows how to download the PHANGS-HST and JWST data products. Next, the notebook shows how to download the public Multiscale Stellar associations and MUSE HII region catalogs for comparison.

PHANGS-HST Star Cluster Catalogs

Author:  Daniel Maschmann

This notebook shows how to access PHANGS-CAT data and visualize star clusters and compact associations in nearby galaxies.
