Object name: NGC5970
Designation(s): NGC5970, IC1131,
NGC 5970 is a nice spiral galaxy in Serpens Caput. It is classified by NED as SB(r)c; HII LINER. It is some 90 to 100 million light-years distant depending on the source. I measure it at about 76,000 light-years across its longest dimension. I used 92 million light-years for a distance as that was a distance that best fit the various distance I found weighting toward the modern when a date was available.
