PGC 14892 (=
Arp 20)
A magnitude 14(?) spiral galaxy (type SABb?) in Taurus (RA 04 19 53.6, Dec +02 05 38)
Based on a recessional velocity of 4215 km/sec, PGC 14892 is about 195 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.1 by 0.6 arcmin, it is about 60 thousand light years across. Used by the Arp Atlas as an example of a three-armed spiral galaxy.
