Description

NGC7479 (also known as Caldwell 44) is a barred spiral galaxy about 105 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus. It was discovered by William Herschel in 1784. Supernovae SN 1990U and SN2009jf occurred in NGC 7479. NGC7479 is also recognized as a Seyfert galaxy undergoing starburst activity in the nucleus and the outer arms (Kohno, 2007). Polarization studies of this galaxy indicate that it recently underwent a minor merger and that it is unique in the radio continuum, with arms opening in a direction opposite to the optical arms. Discovered in 1784 by William Herschel.
Observation Notes : Pretty bright, large, elongated, bright middle at 165X. The central bar structure is seen on a sharp evening, averted vision makes the galaxy grow in size.
