The vast majority of observed galaxies are classified as either spiral or elliptical, with a
small minority (ie. the Magellanic Clouds), classified as irregular according to a scheme
originated by Hubble.
These galaxies have no special shape, and are known as irregular galaxies. Some
irregular galaxies seem to have a trace of spiral structure, and might really be the
equivalent of spirals with very loose arms. Others are truly irregular.
