Abstract (from CDS):

We present deep V and I photometry of the isolated dwarf galaxy VV124=UGC 4879, obtained from archival images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope - Advanced Camera for Surveys. In the color-magnitude diagrams of stars at distances greater than 40'' from the center of the galaxy, we clearly identify a well-populated, old horizontal branch (HB) for the first time. We show that the distribution of these stars is more extended than that of red clump stars. This implies that very old and metal-poor populations dominate in the outskirts of VV124. We also identify a massive (M=1.2±0.2x104M) young (age=250±50Myr) star cluster (C1), as well as another of younger age (C2, ≲30±10Myr) with a mass similar to classical open clusters (M≤3.3±0.5x103M). Both clusters lie at projected distances less than 100pc from the center of the galaxy.
