Description

NGC 300 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor.As a member of the Sculptor Galaxy Group it is one of the closest galaxies to our Local Group. It is the brightest of the five main spirals in this group. One of the most interesting things about NGC 300 is that it is so normal. It is an Sc-type spiral galaxy, showing typical flowing blue spiral arms, an expected compact nucleus, and the requisite number of stars, star clusters, and nebulae. For these reasons it is often used as a prototype of a typical spiral galaxy.
