IC 900 (= PGC 47855)
Discovered (May 14, 1892) by
Stephane Javelle (247)
A magnitude 13.0 spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)bc) in Virgo (RA 13 34 43, +09 20 13)
Based on a recessional velocity of 7070 km/sec, IC 900 is about 315 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 260 to 340 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 1.6 by 1.0 arcmin(?), it is about 150 thousand light years across.
