Description

NGC 7331 (also known as Caldwell 30) is an unbarred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus.

The galaxy is similar in size and structure to the Milky Way, and is sometimes referred to as "the Milky Way's twin". However, discoveries in the 2000s regarding the structure of the Milky Way may call this similarity into doubt, particularly because the latter is now believed to be a barred spiral, compared to the unbarred status of NGC 7331.

PGC 2051985 is a 16th magnitude elliptical Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 47 million light years from our solar system.

PGC 69281 is a 15th magnitude Spiral Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 404 million light years from our solar system.

PGC 69291 is a Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation.

NGC 7336 is a 15th magnitude Spiral Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 428 million light years from our solar system.

NGC 7333 is a 14th magnitude multiple star appearing in the Pegasus constellation.

NGC 7335 is a 13th magnitude Spiral Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 307 million light years from our solar system.

NGC 7338 is a 12th magnitude multiple star appearing in the Pegasus constellation.

NGC 7340 is a 14th magnitude elliptical Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 313 million light years from our solar system.

NGC 7337 is a 15th magnitude spiral Galaxy appearing in the Pegasus constellation. It is 323 million light years from our solar system.
