PGC 119500
A magnitude 17.5(?) galaxy (type S0/a?) in
Virgo (RA 14 28 09.0, Dec -02 55 59)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 24350 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 119500 is about 1135 million light years away. However, for objects at such distances we should take into account the expansion of the Universe during the time it took their light to reach us. Doing that shows that the galaxy was about 1030 to 1035 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 1070 to 1075 million years ago (the difference between the two numbers being due to the expansion of the intervening space during the light-travel time). Given that and its apparent size of about 0.15 by 0.15 arcmin, the galaxy is about 45 thousand light years across.
