The Magellanic Bridge is a stream of neutral hydrogen that links the two Magellanic Clouds. It is mostly a low-metallicity gas feature, though a few stars have been found inside it. It should not be confused with the Magellanic Stream, which links the Magellanic Clouds to the Milky Way. It was discovered in 1963 by J. V. Hindman et al.
