Object name: NGC0027
Designation(s): NGC0027, KPG3,
KPG 3 is a pair of galaxies in Andromeda about a half degree east of Alpheratz a bit over 310 to 340 million light-years distant. The eastern member is NGC 27 a spiral galaxy that NED and the NGC Project classifies as S? while Seligman says Sbc?. I measure its size at nearly 120,000 light-years counting faint extensions seen in the FITs data and 90,000 for the bright region obvious in the JPG image. It was discovered by Lewis Swift on August 3, 1884. The companion was too faint to be seen in his telescope so was missed.
