NGC (also known as the Whale Galaxy or Caldwell 32) is a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes galaxy's slightly distorted wedge shape gives it the appearance of a herring or a whale, hence its nickname.

Because this nearby galaxy is seen edge-on from Earth, professional astronomers observe this galaxy to better understand the gas and stars located outside the Constellation: Canes Venatici.

We have used the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer to search for O VI λλ, emission in the halos of the edge-on spiral galaxies NGC and NGC In NGCwe detected O VI in emission toward a soft X-ray bubble above a region containing numerous Hα arcs and filaments.

The line-of-sight component of the motion of the O VI gas appears to match the underlying disk Cited by: We present a 60 ks Chandra ACIS-S observation of the isolated edge-on spiral galaxy NGCtogether with a multiwavelength analysis of various discrete X-ray sources and diffuse X-ray features.

Among 33 discrete X-ray sources detected within the IB = 25 mag arcsec-2 isophote ellipse of the galaxy, we identify a candidate for the galactic nucleus, an ultraluminous X-ray source that might be Cited by: An ultraviolet image of NGC taken with GALEX.

H-alpha observations of two edge-on galaxies - NGC and NGC - are reported. NGC is a weak H-alpha emitter, and shows no evidence for a chimney mode in its disk. NGC (also known as the Whale Galaxy or Caldwell 32) is an edge-on spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes galaxy's slightly distorted wedge shape gives it the appearance of a herring or a whale, hence its nickname.

Comparison of the mm emission of NGC with the H emission, which has been smoothed to 6. The dwarf elliptical galaxy NGC is invisible here. Note the large disturbed area in the west. Taken from Wikipedia: NGC (also cataloged as Caldwell 32) is an edge-on spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici.

This galaxy's slightly distorted wedge shape gives it the appearance of a herring or a whale, hence its nickname. The galaxy contains a central starburst, which is a region of intense star formation. NW 07/ A WALTERBOS, R. X-ray emission from the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC NC 11/ A CLARK, G.

Coherence of RM on a large scale is indeed seen in a number of galaxies (for example, M31, NGCNGC ). The galaxy M31 seems to have a 20 kpc sized torus of emission, with the regular field nearly aligned with the spiral arms forming an emission ‘ring’, with an average pitch angle of about ∘.

Although beautiful, this image perhaps does not do justice to the galaxy’s true aesthetic appeal: NGC is actually a. Distances.

Two units of distance are frequently used in the discussion of galaxies -- the light-year and the parsec. A light-year is the distance light travels in one year -- roughly 6 trillion miles (6 x 10 12 miles) or trillion kilometers ( x 10 12 km).

2 A parsec (pc) is a peculiar unit of distance that is defined in terms of the apparent shifting (parallax) of stars across the. Galaxies Runner up: NGC – The Deer Lick Group by Bernard Miller (USA) NGC is an unbarred spiral galaxy found some 40 million light years away from Earth, in the constellation Pegasus.
