Object name: NGC2357
NGC 2357/FGC 0619 is a large flat galaxy in central Gemini seen nearly edge on. Its distance is about 110 million light-years both by redshift and the median of 18 mostly Tully Fisher based measurements. Assuming that distance it is about 115,000 light-years across. The disk appears warped but that may be an illusion seeing its two widely separated arms at a very slight angle. I can't make up my mind. Both NED and the NGC project have decided it is an Sc galaxy.
