Object name: NGC0428
NGC 428 is one odd looking galaxy in Cetus. Redshift puts it 38 million light-years away. Unfortunately, the error bar of redshift is at least this great meaning it could be twice as distant. In fact, Tully-Fisher measurements put it between 45 and 54 million light-years distant. The longer estimate may be the more accurate. It is classed as SAB(s)m with HII emission. Galaxies of the Magellan class tend to look rather messed up. Are they naturally this way is the question. I see one note at NED that says; "Two bar-like bright regions suggest that an interaction may be occurring, and one of the bars has more bright knots than the other. The galaxy is not detected at radio wavelengths by NH." Usually, if there's interaction involved you'd expect rather high radio activity. If it is 50 million light-years distant it would be about 60,000 light-years across. If the redshift distance of is right then it is about 45,000 light-years across.
