Object name: IC0620
IC 620 is one of a pair of interacting galaxies about 470,000 light-years distant. The Sc galaxy is located in Leo about 6 degrees east of Regulus. The pair is known as CGCG 065-055. Three starlike blobs are seen in IC 620 while one is in the companion. Of the three in IC 620 two are to the west of the core. The lower is listed by NED as a possible QSO candidate. The one to the north and the one north of the galaxy's core are listed as rejected QSOs. The one in the companion southwest of its core is brighter than the other three yet not listed at NED at all. Are they just field stars or star clouds created by the interaction between the two galaxies? I couldn't find anything more on them. The galaxy was discovered on March 31, 1892 by Stephane Javelle who described it as "very faint, very small." He made no mention of the companion. Thus only the one makes it into the Index Catalog. It is listed as Sc by NED and Sbc? by Seligman.
