PGC 43679
(= PGC 183378 = UGCA 304 = MCG -01-33-032)

A magnitude 13.5(?) spiral galaxy (type Sd: sp) in
Virgo (RA 12 52 27.0, Dec -09 45 13)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 2595 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), PGC 43679 is about 120 million light-years away, in good agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of about 85 to 130 million light-years. Given that and its apparent size of about 2.7 by 0.25 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 95 thousand light-years across.
Note About Relationship To PGC 43690: The difference of 300 km/sec in the recessional velocities of these two galaxies probably means that they are not physically connected, and PGC 43679 is a slightly background galaxy; however, it is possible that they are closer together than their indicated distances would suggest, and that PGC 43679 is simply moving away from us relative to its apparent neighbor, albeit at a slightly larger than normal "peculiar velocity."
Classification Note: HyperLEDA lists this galaxy as type Sc, while NED lists it as both Scd: edge-on and Sdm, "cd:" meaning that because the galaxy is edge-on, its classification is uncertain. Considering the negligible size of the nuclear bulge, it seemed best to list it in the description line as type "d: sp", meaning probably type "d", but because it is a "spindle" (or edge-on galaxy), that part of the classification is uncertain (which, given the range of types listed in LEDA and NED, is obviously correct).

PGC 43690
(= MCG -01-33-034 = MRK 1337)

A magnitude 13.5(?) spiral galaxy (type SAB(s)ab pec?) in
Virgo (RA 12 52 34.7, Dec -09 46 36)
Physical Information: Based on a recessional velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation of 2890 km/sec (and H0 = 70 km/sec/Mpc), PGC 43690 is about 135 million light-years away, in reasonable agreement with redshift-independent distance estimates of about 90 to 130 million light-years (the HST press release uses a distance of "about 120 million light-years"). Given that and its apparent size of about 1.4 by 0.8 arcmin (from the images below), the galaxy is about 45 to 50 thousand light-years across. (See PGC 43679 for a brief discussion of a possible relationship between the two galaxies.)
