Object name: NGC5534
NGC 5534/Markarian 1379 is a very strange galaxy in western Virgo, almost into Libra. That may explain why a Virgo galaxy is in an area where virtually no galactic studies are being conducted. I came up nearly blank on the field but for this galaxy and its satellite. Redshift puts it at 130 million light-years though a single estimate based on a Type II supernova that was seen in 2001 puts it at about one hundred million light-years away. In any case, it lies beyond the Virgo Cluster. NED classifies it as (R')SAB(s)ab pec with HII while Seligman says (R)SAB(s)ab? pec and lists it as being a starburst galaxy. NGC project says simply Sbab, I think they mean SBab. It was discovered April 29, 1881 by Wilhelm Temple. It was found a couple weeks later on May 17, 1881 by Édouard Stephan.
