With
NGC 7317, 7319 and 7320 = Stephan's Quintet = Arp 319 = Hickson 92
Discovered (Sep 23, 1876) by Édouard Stephan (8a-20)
A pair of interacting 13th-magnitude galaxies in Pegasus
PGC 69260 = "NGC 7318A" = An elliptical galaxy (type E2? pec) at RA 22 35 56.7, Dec +33 57 58
PGC 69263 = "NGC 7318B" = A spiral galaxy (type SB(s)bc? pec) at RA 22 35 58.3, Dec +33 58 00
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: NGC 7318 represents two of the four galaxies in Stephan's Quintet that are at about the same distance from us (NGC 7320 is merely a foreground galaxy). Based on a recessional velocity of 6630 km/sec, PGC 69260 (the western member of the pair) should be about 310 million light years away, which is about the same distance as NGC 7317. However, there must be a substantial effect due to peculiar (non-Hubble-expansion) velocities, since PGC 69263, which is strongly interacting with PGC 69260 and must be at the same distance, has a recessional velocity of only 5775 km/sec, which corresponds to a distance of only 270 million light years. That value is probably too low, and the other distance probably too high, and the pair must have an actual distance around 290 million light years (give or take at least 10 million light years). Given that, PGC 69260's apparent size of 1.3 by 1.2 arcmin corresponds to about 110 thousand light years, and PGC 69263's apparent size of 2.0 by 1.0 arcmin corresponds to about 170 thousand light years (these sizes probably include the clouds of gas and stars ejected from the main structures by their gravitational interaction).

Below, a ? arcmin wide infrared image of the region shows (in false-color green) a region of gas larger than our Milky Way galaxy colliding with the esatern side of NGC 7318 at more than a million miles an hour. The shock wave caused by that collision heats up the gas (causing the radiation shown in the image) and compresses it, forming knots of hot, bright young stars seen scattered throughout the region in the visible-light images above.

NGC 7319 (= PGC 69269)
With
7317, NGC 7318 and 7320 = Stephan's Quintet = Arp 319 = Hickson 92
Discovered (Sep 23, 1876) by Édouard Stephan (8a-21)
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(s)bc? pec) in Pegasus (RA 22 36 03.5, Dec +33 58 35)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: NGC 7319 is one of the four galaxies in Stephan's Quintet that are at about the same distance from us (NGC 7320 is merely a foreground galaxy). Based on a recessional velocity of 6745 km/sec, NGC 7319 is about 300 million light years away, which is about the same as the estimated distances for the other members of the group. Given that and its apparent size of 1.7 by 1.3 arcmin, it about 150 thousand light years across, and a long arm of ejected material extends another 200 thousand light years or so to its southwest. Presumably due to its gravitational interaction with the other members of the Quintet, NGC 7319 is a Seyfert galaxy (type Sy 2).

Discovered (Sep 23, 1876) by Édouard Stephan (8a-22)
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SA(s)d?) in Pegasus (RA 22 36 03.5, Dec +33 56 54)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Although listed as a member of Stephan's Quintet (because discovered by Stephan at the same time, and in the same direction), NGC 7320 is unconnected to the other galaxies in the group, being nearly ten times closer to us. Based on a recessional velocity of 785 km/sec, NGC 7320 is about 35 million light years away. However, for such small distances, peculiar (non-Hubble-expansion) velocities can significantly affect the distance estimate, and the value is considerably less than redshift-independent estimates of 45 to 60 million light years; so for the purposes of this discussion, I have assumed an approximate distance of about 50 million light years. Given that and its apparent size of 2.2 by 1.1 arcmin, the galaxy is probably about 30 thousand light years across.

A 15th-magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in
Pegasus (RA 22 36 32.2, Dec +33 47 46)
Physical Information: PGC 3965656 has no apparent relationship to NGC 7320, so save for being within a quarter degree of Stephan's Quintet, it is a mystery why it has received its faux NGC name. Other than its apparent size (about 0.75 by 0.2 arcmin), there appears to be nothing available.

A 16th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type (R)SAB0/a(s)?) in

Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 5985 km/sec, PGC 69279 is about 280 million light years away, which is close to the average distance of Stephen's Quintet, so unlike NGC 7320, which is a foreground galaxy, PGC 69279 may be a member of the main group. Given that distance and its apparent size of 0.7 by 0.6 arcmin, it is about 55 thousand light years across.

NGC 7349 (= PGC 69488)
Discovered (1886) by
Frank Muller (II-469)
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SBb pec?) in Aquarius (RA 22 41 14.7, Dec -21 47 48)
Historical Identification:
Physical Information: Apparent size Based on a recessional velocity of 4480 km/sec, NGC 7349 is about 210 million light years away, about 35 million light years beyond redshift-independent distance estimates of about 175 million light years. Presuming an intermediate distance of about 200 million light years, its apparent size of 1.0 by 0.5? arcmin corresponds to about 60 thousand light years.
