PGC 67907
A magnitude 13.1 spiral galaxy (type SB(rs)bc?) in
Piscis Austrinus (RA 22 02 41.7, Dec -33 48 18)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity of 4480 km/sec, PGC 67907 is about 210 million light years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of 145 to 230 light years. Given that and its apparent size of 1.95 by 1.25 arcmin, it is about 120 thousand light years across. The galaxy lies about half a minute of time due west of IC 5156, which is what brought my attention to it. However, PGC 67907 is much further away than the IC object, so there is no connection between them.
