PGC 51844
A magnitude 16.5(?) spiral galaxy (type SBbc?) in
Bo÷tes (RA 14 30 38.7, Dec +11 52 29)
Physical Information: Odds are that PGC 51844 is much further away than its apparent neighbor, NGC 5647, but no distance estimates appear to be available, so that is only informed speculation. Given the lack of any distance estimate, there is no way to know how big the galaxy really is, but its apparent size is about 0.25 by 0.25 arcmin.
