Star Formation History of the Fornax Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy

  • M. Koleva, Ph. Prugniel, I. Vauglin, A. del Pino (a1) (a2), A. Aparicio (a1) (a2), C. Gallart (a1) (a2) and S. Hidalgo (a1) (a2)...


We present color-magnitude diagrams (CMD) reaching the oldest main sequence turn offs for three fields in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal galaxy, obtained with FORS1 at the VLT. One of them is situated at the center of the galaxy while the other two are located at a distance of 10′ form the center. We determine the full star formation history (SFH) of the central field, extending to the first star formation events.
