PGC 28323
A magnitude 13.5(?) spiral galaxy (type SB(s)bc?) in
Hydra (RA 09 50 27.7, Dec -21 48 09)
PGC 28323 lies only a minute of time to the east southeast of NGC 3025 and is just a little fainter, so it clearly stands out on images of the region near NGC 3205, so it appears to deserve an early entry in this database.
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 8800 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 28323 is about 410 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 395 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 400 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 1.4 by 1.15 arcmin, it is about 160 thousand light years across.
     NED lists a pair of redshift-independent distance estimates of 150 and 155 million light years for the galaxy, indicating that either they or the recessional velocity have been mistakenly applied to the wrong galaxy. If the distance based on the recessional velocity is wrong and the galaxy is actually closer to 150 million light years away, then the apparent size corresponds to only about 60 thousand light years. Unfortunately, neither the larger nor smaller sizes for the galaxy are obviously wrong, so there is currently no way of knowing what its correct distance and size are.

PGC 28480
A magnitude 15(?) spiral galaxy (type SBbc?) in
Leo (RA 09 53 05.7, Dec +19 21 40)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 7595 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 28480 is about 355 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 345 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, about 350 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 0.65 by 0.5 arcmin, the galaxy is about 55 thousand light years across.
