Object name: NGC4298
Designation(s): NGC4298, NGC4302,
NGC 4298 and 4302 are a commonly imaged pair of galaxies in the Virgo galaxy cluster about 60 million light-years away. Redshift puts them a bit further than this. They share nearly the same redshift indicating they could be quite close together. This, however, appears rather unlikely as there's no real sign of interaction. If they were as close as they appear to be from our perspective distortion of NGC 4302's edge on disk should be obvious. It shows no sign of being warped. Both galaxies do show a large faint outer halo than their obvious disks but again, these would distort if they were really close and this isn't seen.
