Object name: NGC3206
Designation(s): NGC3206, NGC3214, NGC3220,
NGC 3206 is a strangely distorted galaxy in Ursa Major just west of the bowl of the dipper. It is quite nearby at about 60 million light-years by redshift and 66 million light-years by the median of 7 Tully-Fisher measurements. Using the latter distance it is a rather average size spiral at 47,000 light-years across its north-south axis. I don't find much on it and nothing on how it might have gotten its odd shape. Unusual the shape might be but not enough to garner a peculiar label as most classify it is an SBc or SBcd galaxy. It was discovered by William Herschel on April 8, 1793. It didn't make either of the Herschel 400 observing programs, probably due to its low surface brightness.
