      "The term "hobbit galaxy" has been used recently to refer to galaxies even smaller than dwarf galaxies, which contain a few million stars. Hobbit galaxies only contain a few hundred thousand stars, similar to a large star cluster within a galaxy. By comparison, our own Milky Way contains 200-400 billion stars, more stars than there are galaxies in the universe." (op. cit.)
