DE not DM

This is not about dark *matter*. The galaxies were spotted by a telescope designed to search for evidence related to dark *energy*.

These dwarf galaxies have nothing (directly) to do with either dark matter or dark energy. (And being outside the main disk of the galaxy, they wouldn't affect the rotation curves of the inner stars.)
