Hot DOG

(Hot Dust-Obscured Galaxy, Hot Dust-Obscured Object)
(high-energy galaxy with a lot of dust)

About 1000 galaxies dubbed Hot DOGs (Hot Dust-Obscured Galaxy or Hot Dust-Obscured Object) have been seen by Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), having 1000 times the Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) as the Milky Way and largely as old as 10 billion years (Redshifts (z) in 2 to 4 range). They may be obscured Quasars (QSO)/Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN).
