An interacting view of NGC 1427A

NGC 1427A is a dwarf galaxy located at the outskirts of the Fornax Galaxy Cluster. Its location, shape, and clear star formation events have made this galaxy a nearby laboratory of how dwarfs are affected by the dense environment of the galaxy group. The origin of its star formation burst is unclear: It has been proposed to be due to gravitational interaction (i.e. merger?) or ram pressure stripping. Here I will show, in an interactive way, my latest result of our MUSE integral field observations. I will present the advantages of this analysis approach, drawing my final conclusion about the nature of this galaxy. Finally, if time allows, I would like to present further examples applied to other galaxies as work in progress.
