Palomar 4 is a globular cluster orbiting the Milky Way galaxy. It was discovered in 1949 by American astronomer Edwin Hubble but found again in 1955 by A. G. Wilson; it is 356,000 light-years away, which is further than the Magellanic Clouds and SagDEG satellite galaxies.
Originally it was thought to be a dwarf galaxy, and it was thus given the canon name Ursa Major Dwarf. However, it was later discovered to be only a globular cluster.
