Messier 99 or M99 (NGC 4254) is an unbarred spiral galaxy approximately 50 million light-years away[3] in the constellation Coma Berenices. The galaxy has a normal looking arm and an extended arm that is less tightly wound. A bridge of neutral hydrogen gas links NGC 4254 with VIRGOHI21, a HI region and a possible dark galaxy.
