NGC 3759


Post by dcrowson »

NGC 3759 (UGC 6581, PGC 35945 and others) is an odd spiral galaxy located approximately 257 million light-years away in Ursa Major. This one appears to have faint arms that don’t show up on the survey images. I also could not find another image of this one online.

PGC 94203 is the small companion to NGC 3759.

See the annotated version for the locations of other galaxies.
