Object name: NGC2347
Designation(s): NGC2347, IC2179,
NGC 2347 is a face on spiral galaxy in southeastern Camelopardalis about 200 million light-years distant. It has a bright central region and arms that are rather red. It has a slightly blue middle region of arms and an out disk that is somewhat bluer with little arm structure though it has a few star clouds apparently randomly distributed in it. The galaxy was discovered by William Herschel on November 1, 1788. It is in the second Herschel 400 observing program. This is what put it on my to-do list.
