Description

NGC 5364 is a grand design spiral galaxy located 54.5 million light years away in the constellation Virgo. The morphological classification of NGC 4698 indicates it has an incomplete ring structure in the inner part of the galaxy with moderate to loosely wound arms and has a peculiar aspect. In particular, the appearance of the spiral arms is amorphous and asymmetrical compared to other galaxies with a similar classification. A companion galaxy, NGC 5363, is located to the north of NGC 5364 and their gravitational interaction may be influencing the peculiar morphology of the latter.
