PGC 35041 (=
NGC 3664 = Arp 5)

PGC 35295
A magnitude 15(?) spiral galaxy (type SAB(rs)bc? pec) in
Leo (RA 11 28 13.3, Dec +04 19 02)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 8250 km/sec, a straightforward calculation indicates that PGC 35295 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 370 to 375 million light years away at the time the light by which we see it was emitted, 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 1.25 by 0.45 arcmin, the galaxy is about 135 thousand light years across.
