Description

Hi! This is my simple rendition of NGC 5364 - RGB acquired by Liverpool Telescope...hope you enjoy!! :-)

NGC 5364 is a grand design spiral galaxy located 54.5 million light years away in the constellation Virgo. It is inclined to the line of sight from the Earth at an angle of 47° along a position angle of 25°.

The mid-infrared emission in the nucleus appears weak compared to the spiral arms, suggesting a low rate of star formation in the core region. The inner ring of this galaxy spans a diameter of 22 kly (6.7 kpc) and is located slightly off center with the northern side showing a stronger emission in the hydrogen alpha band compared to the southern half. Multiple H II regions lie along the spiral arms, tracing out their extent. Each of the two main arms wrap all the way around the galaxy, although they display patchiness along much of their length.

NGC Designation
This object was discovered by William Herschel on February 2, 1786 and later listed as NGC 5364. It was subsequently rediscovered by John Herschel on April 7, 1828 and later listed as NGC 5317. Source : Wikipedia
