Object name: NGC5701
NGC 5701 is a quasi-ringed barred spiral about 80 million light-years distant in Virgo. The arms are very faint. They are quite odd in that the inner half of each arm that forms the ring is red while the center to outer half is blue. I've never seen arms so segregated as to star color (temperature) before. Hot blue stars to the outside of western arm and middle of eastern and in clusters while the red streams are smooth and composed of old, cool, red stars. It was discovered by William Herschel on April 29, 1786. It isn't in either H400 program.
