NGC 5400 (= PGC 49869)
Discovered (Apr 15, 1787) by
William Herschel
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type (R)S0?) in Virgo (RA 14 00 37.2, Dec -02 51 27)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 7435 km/sec, NGC 5400 is about 350 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.15 by 1.05 arcmin, it is about 115 thousand light years across.
