PGC 127500
A magnitude 15.5(?) spiral galaxy (type Sbc?) in
Horologium (RA 02 19 41.5, Dec -63 36 30)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 8265 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 127500 is about 385 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 370 to 375 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 375 to 380 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 0.7 by 0.4 arcmin, the galaxy is about 75 thousand light years across. (Listed in the NED as 2MASX J02194152-6336301)
