WORKING PGC 39

PGC 1
A 16th-magnitude galaxy (type ?) in
Pisces (RA 23 59 58.8, Dec +00 42 06)
Based on a recessional velocity of 23985 km/sec, a straightforward calculation yields a distance for PGC 1 of about 1.05 billion light years. However, at that distance we need to take the expansion of the Universe into account, as during the billion-plus years it took the light by which we see the galaxy to reach us, the space between us and it has expanded by about 80 million light years. As a result, it was only about 975 million light years away when it emitted that light. Given that and its apparent size of 0.5 by 0.4 arcmins, PGC 1 is about 90 thousand light years across. As shown in the image below, the galaxy appears to be paired with SDSS J235958.29+004208.6, a 16th-magnitude galaxy (type ?) at RA 23 59 58.3, Dec +00 42 09. The latter galaxy has a recessional velocity of 22755 km/sec and and an apparent size of 0.4 by 0.3 arcmin. The difference in recessional velocity for the two galaxies corresponds to 55 million light years difference in distance, so they may not be a physical pair; but in comparison to any uncertainty in their distance, they are at essentially the same distance from us, so the apparently smaller galaxy is also physically smaller, at about 70 thousand light years across.

PGC 2
A 13th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SB(rs)b) in
Andromeda (RA 00 00 01.7, Dec +47 16 28)
Based on a recessional velocity of 5015 km/sec, PGC 2 is about 225 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 2.1 by 1.8 arcmins, it is about 130 thousand light years across. PGC 2 is listed as a member of Local Galaxy Group 485, which also contains PGC 676 and IC 1525. IC 1525 is also listed as a member of WBL729, a group with an average recessional velocity of about 5020 km/sec which also includes PGC 18 and 73195; so all five galaxies may be physically related. PGC 2, 18 and 73195 and IC 1525 (which see for a wide-field view of the four galaxies) are less than 30 arcmin apart, and if at nearly the same distance from us, may be within a region less than two million light years across; but PGC 676 is quite a bit further away, being about 2 1/2 degrees east of the other group members.

Cetus (RA 00 00 03.2, Dec -18 00 30)
Based on a recessional velocity of 8955 km/sec, PGC 3 is about 400 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.6 by 0.25 arcmins, it is about 70 thousand light years across. (Note: NED does not recognize PGC 3; search for MGC-03-01-012, instead.)

PGC 8
An 18th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type ?) in
Octans (RA 00 00 06.0, Dec -77 20 19)
One of a group of three interacting galaxies comprised of PGC 8, 9 and 11 (which see for pictures of the group). Not listed by its PGC number in NED; use the designation ESO 012-IG 011 NED01. Based on its recessional velocity of 17000 km/sec, PGC 8 is about 760 million light years away; but taking into account the expansion of the Universe during its light's 3/4 billion year journey, it was about 40 million light years closer when the light by which we see it was emitted. Given its distance and apparent size of 0.3 by 0.2 arcmin, PGC 8 is about 65 thousand light years across; but that does not take into account the extensions due to the gravitational interactions of the group members.

PGC 9
A 17th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type ?) in
Octans (RA 00 00 08.7, Dec -77 20 21)
One of a group of three interacting galaxies comprised of PGC 8, 9 and 11 (which see for pictures of the group). Not listed by its PGC number in NED; use the designation ESO 012-IG 011 NED02. Based on its recessional velocity of 17590 km/sec, PGC 9 is about 785 million light years away; but taking into account the expansion of the Universe during its light's 3/4 billion year journey, it was about 40 million light years closer when the light by which we see it was emitted. Given its distance and apparent size of 0.4 by 0.25 arcmin, PGC 9 is about 85 thousand light years across; but that does not take into account the extensions due to the gravitational interactions of the group members. (Note: A Wikisky search for PGC 9 does not work, due to an all too common truncation error; search for one of its companions, instead.)

PGC 10
A 16th-(B)magnitude lenticular galaxy (type S0?) in
Pisces (RA 00 00 07.8, Dec -00 02 26)
Based on a recessional velocity of 7090 km/sec, PGC 10 is about 315 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.4 by 0.4 arcmins, it is about 40 thousand light years across. Listed by I. D. Karachentsev as a member (with PGC 7) of pair KPG 600.

PGC 11
A 17th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type S0?) in
Octans (RA 00 00 09.5, Dec -77 20 30)
One of a group of three interacting galaxies, comprised of PGC 8, 9, and 11. NED uses PGC 11 as the designation for the group, and PGC 11 itself is listed as ESO 012-IG 011 NED 03. Based on its recessional velocity of 17000 km/sec, PGC 11 is about 760 million light years away; but taking into account the expansion of the Universe during its light's 3/4 billion year journey, it was about 40 million light years closer when the light by which we see it was emitted. Given its distance and apparent size of 0.45 by 0.25 arcmin, PGC 11 is about 95 thousand light years across; but that does not take into account the extensions due to the gravitational interactions of the group members.

PGC 14
A 16th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E4?) in
Pisces (RA 00 00 07.0, Dec +08 16 45)
Based on a recessional velocity of 11600 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 14 is about 520 million light years away; however, due to the expansion of the Universe during its light's half billion year journey, the galaxy was about 20 million light years closer at the time the light by which we see it was emitted. Given its distance and apparent size of 1.45 by 0.85 arcmins, the galaxy is about 200 thousand light years across. Cataloged as a narrow-line Seyfert galaxy (type NLSy1). Note: Not listed by PGC number in NED; for a search, use UGC 12890.

A 15th-(B)magnitude spiral galaxy (type S?) in
Pisces (RA 00 00 05.0, Dec -05 12 34)
Based on a recessional velocity of 11290 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 15 is about 500 million light years away; however, due to the expansion of the Universe during its light's half billion year journey, the galaxy was about 20 million light years closer at the time the light by which we see it was emitted. Given its distance and apparent size of 0.65 by 0.65 arcmins, it is about 95 thousand light years across. Note: Not listed by PGC number in NED; for a search, use MCG-01-01-015.

PGC 18
A 15th-magnitude starburst galaxy (type SB?) in
Andromeda (RA 00 00 13.0, Dec +46 57 54)
Based on a recessional velocity of 5365 km/sec, PGC 18 is about 240 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.1 by 1.0 arcmins, it is about 75 thousand light years in diameter. The galaxy is listed as a member of WBL729, a group with an average recessional velocity of about 5020 km/sec which also includes IC 1525 and PGC 73195. IC 1525 is also listed as a member of Local Galaxy Group 485, which includes PGC 2 and 676; so all five galaxies may be physically related. PGC 2, 18 and 73195 and IC 1525 (which see for a wide-field view of the four galaxies) are less than 30 arcmin apart, and if at nearly the same distance from us, may be within a region less than two million light years across; but PGC 676 is quite a bit further away, being about 2 1/2 degrees east of the other group members. In the images below, the reddish cast below and bluish cast above is due to poor color correction of the DSS mosaic; it is not a real difference in color. Note: Not listed by PGC number in NED; for a search, use WBL729-003.

PGC 22 (= PGC 265123)
A 19th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type ?) in
Tucana (RA 00 00 17.5, Dec -72 10 13)
Considered a pair with PGC 19 (which see for images), as shown by their ESO and NED catalog entries; but almost nothing appears to be known about them, so they are more likely to be an optical double than in any way connected. PGC 22 has an apparent size of 0.2 by 0.15 arcmins; but nothing else is available. Note: Not listed by PGC number in NED; for a search, use ESO 050-IG 005 NED02.

PGC 23
A 15th-(B)magnitude supergiant elliptical galaxy (type cD?) in
Pisces (RA 00 00 21.5, Dec -02 36 44)
Based on a recessional velocity of 11365 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 23 is a little over 500 million light years away. However, at that distance we need to take the expansion of the Universe into account, as during the half billion years it took the light by which we see the galaxy to reach us, the space between us and it has expanded by about 20 million light years. As a result, it was only about 485 million light years away when it emitted that light. Given that and its apparent size of 1.4 by 0.8 arcmins, the galaxy is about 200 thousand light years in diameter.

PGC 1679585 = An 18th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type ?) at RA 00 00 21.0, Dec +22 59 44
Based on a recessional velocity of 11710 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 25 is about 525 million light years away. However, at that distance we need to take the expansion of the Universe into account, as during the half billion years it took the light by which we see the galaxy to reach us, the space between us and it has expanded by about 20 million light years. As a result, it was only a little over 500 million light years away when it emitted that light. Given that and its apparent size of 0.85 by 0.5 arcmin (including its distorted outer regions), it is about 125 thousand light years across. PGC 25 is part of an interacting pair with PGC 200388 (hence its use by Arp as an example of a multiple galaxy), and most searches for PGC 25 will show information about the pair instead of the individual galaxy. For a galaxy-specific NED search, use UGC 12891 NED01 for PGC 25, and UGC 12891 NED02 for PGC 200388.

A 16th-(B)magnitude galaxy (type ?) in Pegasus (RA 00 00 19.8, Dec +22 59 37)
(See PGC 25, above, for images.) Based on a recessional velocity of 11690 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 200388 is about 525 million light years away. However, at that distance we need to take the expansion of the Universe into account, as during the half billion years it took the light by which we see the galaxy to reach us, the space between us and it has expanded by about 20 million light years. As a result, it was only a little over 500 million light years away when it emitted that light. Given that and its apparent size of 0.25 by 0.2 arcmin, it is about 35 thousand light years across. PGC 200388 is part of an interacting pair with PGC 25 (hence its use by Arp as an example of a multiple galaxy), and most searches for PGC 200388 will fail, as it is usually treated as if part of PGC 25. For an NED search, use UGC 12891 NED02 instead of PGC 200388.

Based on a recessional velocity of 12700 km/sec, PGC 29 is about 570 million light years away (although as noted for other galaxies with such large recessional velocities, the expansion of the Universe during its light's more than half billion year journey means that it was about 25 million light years closer when the light by which we see it was emitted). Given that and its apparent size of 0.6 by 0.5 arcmins, it is about 100 thousand light years across. Listed as a member of WBL732, a group of galaxies with an average recessional velocity of 8870 km/sec, along with PGC 77, 91 and IC 5376.

The apparent size of PGC 32 is 0.45 by 0.2 arcmins; apparently nothing else is available. However, it is listed in Leda, ESO and NED as a pair with PGC 34. There is no apparent connection between the two, so they may be merely an optical double; but if they are at comparable distances, PGC 32 is about 110 thousand light years across. Note: Not listed in NED by PGC number; so search using ESO 193-IG 007 NED01 (the NED01 referring to its presumed status as a pair member). For images, see its supposed companion, PGC 34.

PGC 34 (= PGC 480729)
A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type S0/a?) in
Phoenix (RA 00 00 26.1, Dec -49 04 32)
Based on a recessional velocity of 20220 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 34 is about 900 million light years away (although as noted for other galaxies with such large recessional velocities, the expansion of the Universe during its light's nearly billion year journey means that it was about 55 million light years closer when the light by which we see it was emitted). Given that and its apparent size of 0.5 by 0.35 arcmins, it is about 125 thousand light years across. PGC 34 is listed in Leda, ESO and NED as a pair with PGC 32; however, there is no apparent connection between the two, so they may be merely an optical double. Note: Not listed in NED by PGC number; so search using ESO 193-IG 007 NED02 (the NED02 referring to its presumed status as a pair member).

PGC 35
A 17th-magnitude dwarf irregular galaxy (type Im) in
Andromeda (RA 00 00 22.5, Dec +39 29 44)
Based on a recessional velocity of 335 km/sec, PGC 35 is about 15 million light years away. For such a small recessional velocity, the peculiar (non-Hubble-expansion velocity) velocity may significantly affect the accuracy of the distance estimate; but since there don't seem to be any redshift-independent distance estimates, that problem has to be ignored. Assuming the distance is more or less correct, the apparent size of 0.9 by 0.9 arcmins suggests that the galaxy is only 4 thousand light years across, hence its classification as a dwarf.

PGC 37
A 16th-magnitude galaxy (type E3?) in
Pegasus (RA 00 00 31.7, Dec +26 18 19)
Based on a recessional velocity of 7755 km/sec, PGC 37 is about 345 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.55 by 0.4 arcmins, it is about 55 thousand light years across. PGC 37 and 47 are less than 2 arcmin apart, and have nearly the same recessional velocity, so they may be a physical pair; but there is no mention of that possibility in the standard databases, despite the fact that PGC 47 has a complex central structure and faint extended arms (particularly to the north) which are suggestive of a gravitational interaction.

A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)bc pec?) in Cetus (RA 00 06 16.7, Dec -13 26 53)
Other than being a spiral galaxy with a small bright companion (hence its listing as Arp 51), nothing much is known about this galaxy. Classifications range from fairly standard (SABb) to complex (SB(s) c pec II-III), hence the question mark in the combinatory type shown above. The distance and recessional velocity are unknown, so all that can be said about it is that it has an apparent size of about 0.5 by 0.5 arcmin.
