Magellanic Bridge Type Transgalactic HI region Observation data (Epoch J2000.0) Right ascension 03h 11m Declination -77.5° See also: Astronomical object, List of astronomical objects
The Magellanic Bridge is a stream of neutral hydrogen that links the two Magellanic Clouds. It is mostly a low-metallicity gas feature, though a few stars have been found inside it. It should not be confused with the Magellanic Stream, which links the MCs to the Milky Way.
