  1. Spiral Galaxy NGC , (a “flocculent” spiral galaxy), is over 62 million light­years away, approximately 56, light­years in diameter and located in the constellation Coma Berenices. It is a popular target for amateur astronomers to observe given it’s unique characteristics and structure.
  2. UGC , PGC NGC is an unbarred spiral galaxy about 62 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. It is a flocculent spiral galaxy, with short segments of spiral structure but without the dramatic well-defined spiral arms of a grand design wildepofunlauporterpterthehydmendtof.coinfollation: Coma Berenices.
  3. The resulting distance modulus of m +/- m is only m larger than previously reported. P /> A search for Cepheids in NGC has been performed using HST archive data. Accurate photometry for this galaxy is challenging due to its high surface brightness background with steep gradients and the rather low S/N of stellar point sources.
  4. The resulting distance to NGC , megaparsecs or about 60 million light-years, along with similarly determined distances to other nearby galaxies, contributes to astronomers' overall knowledge of the rate of expansion of the universe. In , the Hubble Heritage Team revisited NGC and completed its portrait by observing the other.
  5. Understanding the matter and dark matter distribution of NGC helps humanity calibrate the rest of the galaxy and, by deduction, flocculent spirals in general. Further, calibrating the distance to NGC helps humanity calibrate the cosmological distance scale of the entire visible universe.
  6. At around 60 million light years away, NGC has a diameter of around 56, light years, a little over half that of the Milky Way. Its outer arms contain vast amounts of dust, as well as luminous blue variable stars, which are so bright individual stars can be made out. One supernova has been observed in the galaxy, SN wildepofunlauporterpterthehydmendtof.coinfollation: Coma Berenices.
  7. Original – The majestic spiral galaxy NGC was imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the HST Key Project on the Extragalactic Distance Scale. In , the Hubble Heritage Team revisited NGC and completed its portrait by observing the other half .
