Object name: NGC4866
Designation(s): NGC4866, UGC08091,
UGC 08091 is a dwarf irregular galaxy likely part of our local extended group of galaxies. Distance estimates ranged from 3 million to 7 million light-years with 3.65 million light-years being the median value of 15 estimates at NED. Redshift is worthless this close. It would indicate about 24 million light-years which is certainly not reasonable. The galaxy is full of star knots in what appears to be a random pattern. It is located in Virgo so is seen against the Virgo cluster of galaxies but isn't a member of that group, nor is the other major galaxy in the image NGC 4866. UGC 08091 has a very blue color indicating a lot of recent star formation as such stars live only a few million to tens of millions of years rather than the 10 billion years a star such as our sun would live.
