It's not often an amateur gets to announce a new galaxy. But it appears I have discovered a previously unrecognized dwarf irregular galaxy probably on the edge of the Virgo Cluster some 60 million light-years distant. Considering how well studied this cluster is I never expected there'd be an undiscovered galaxy in the cluster. I'm posting this out of my normal order as some may still have a chance to get better data on it. My latitude makes that impossible for me. Here's the story of its discovery.
