Object name: NGC3433
Designation(s): NGC3433, NGC3444,
NGC 3433 Is a spiral galaxy about 140 million light-years away in Leo 2 degrees southeast of M96. At first glance or in short exposures it appears as a quite normal 2 armed grand design spiral. But looking closer there are fainter outer arms that are odd arm segments. This one could have made Arp's split arm category. The main arm going under the south side of the galaxy suddenly ends and two segments begin. One is straight and angled up sharply compared to the path the main arm was taking. The other follows the normal curved path but goes wide as if being pulled from the galaxy and extends much further than any other arm segment. Odd as there's nothing in the field that could have caused this. NED classes it as SA(s)C while the NGC project says Sc I. It was discovered by William Herschel on March 11, 1784. It's not in either H400 program.
