NGC 5350 (= PGC 49347)
Discovered (Jan 14, 1788) by
William Herschel
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(r)b?) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 53 21.5, Dec +40 21 50)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: A Seyfert galaxy, and a member of the NGC 5353 group of galaxies, also known as Hickson Compact Group 68. Based on a recessional velocity of 2320 km/sec, NGC 5350 is about 110 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 90 to 125 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 3.2 by 2.3 arcmin, it is about 100 thousand light years across.

NGC 5368 (= PGC 49431)
Discovered (Apr 14, 1789) by
William Herschel
Also observed (May 2, 1831) by John Herschel
A magnitude 13.0 spiral galaxy (type (R)SB(rs)ab?) in Ursa Major (RA 13 54 29.1, Dec +54 19 50)
Historical Identification: Per Dreyer, NGC 5368 (= GC 3707 = JH 1706 = WH III 786, 1860 RA 13 49 24, NPD 34 58.6) is "faint, considerably small, round, stellar, 16th magnitude star to northeast". The position precesses to RA 13 54 30.4, Dec +54 20 06, on the northeastern rim of the galaxy listed above, there is nothing else nearby and the (13th magnitude) star to the north northeast makes the identification certain.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 4655 km/sec, NGC 5368 is about 215 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.95 by 0.7 arcmin, it is about 60 thousand light years across.

NGC 5370
Discovered (Mar 19, 1790) by
William Herschel

NGC 5371 (=
NGC 5390)
Discovered (Jan 14, 1788) by William Herschel (and later listed as NGC 5371)
Discovered (Mar 18, 1831) by John Herschel (and later listed as NGC 5390)
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SAB(rs)bc) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 55 40.0, Dec +40 27 44)

Based on a recessional velocity of 2560 km/sec, NGC 5371 is about 120 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 105 to 125 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 4.4 by 3.5 arcmin, it is about 150 thousand light years across. The core of the galaxy is relatively bright, and it is tentatively classified as a Seyfert galaxy (type Sy?). Given its more or less comparable distance, NGC 5371 is probably a wide member of the NGC 5353 galaxy group (the other members are also known as Hickson Compact Group 68).

A 12th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(r)ab) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 56 55.9, Dec +29 09 51)

NGC 5392
Discovered (Apr 15, 1787) by

NGC 5393 (= PGC 49863)
Discovered (Mar 30, 1835) by
John Herschel
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sa) in Hydra (RA 14 00 32.0, Dec -28 52 30)

Apparent size 0.9 by 0.7 arcmin.


NGC 5394 (= PGC 49739, and with
NGC 5395 = Arp 84)
Discovered (May 16, 1787) by William Herschel
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(s)b pec) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 58 33.7, Dec +37 27 13)

NGC 5394 and 5395 are an interacting pair of spiral galaxies, also known as Arp 84. As discussed at the entry for NGC 5395, their recessional velocities imply a distance of about 160 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 1.9 by 1.3 arcmin, NGC 5394 is about 90 thousand light years across.

NGC 5395 (= PGC 49747, and with
NGC 5394 = Arp 84)
Discovered (May 16, 1787) by William Herschel
An 11th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SA(s)b pec) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 58 37.9, Dec +37 25 31)

NGC 5395 and 5394 are an interacting pair of spiral galaxies, also known as Arp 84. Even without their nearly identical recessional velocities (3510 km/sec for NGC 5395 and 3450 km/sec for NGC 5394) their obvious interaction would make it clear that they are at the same distance. Based on their recessional velocities, that distance is about 160 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 3.0 by 1.3 arcmin, NGC 5395 is about 140 thousand light years across. It is a Seyfert galaxy (type Sy 2).

NGC 5396 (=
NGC 5375 = PGC 49604)
Discovered (May 16, 1784) by William Herschel (and later listed as NGC 5396)
Discovered (May 15, 1830) by John Herschel (and later listed as NGC 5375)
A 12th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(r)ab) in Canes Venatici (RA 13 56 55.9, Dec +29 09 51)

William Herschel's position was poor, and although John suspected their observations were of the same object he gave them different listings, in case he was wrong; and Dreyer followed his lead, hence the double listing. Based on a recessional velocity of 2385 km/sec, NGC 5396 (= NGC 5375) is about 110 million light years away, in reasonable agreement with a redshift-independent distance estimate of 125 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 3.2 by 2.8 arcmin, it is about 110 thousand light years across.
