NGC 5965 a 5963 - galaxies in Draco

NGC 5965

 

 

An interesting duo of spiral galaxies NGC 5965 (edge-on) and NGC 5963 (face-on) is situated in the constellation Draco. While NGC 5965  (huge, with diameter of about 250.000 light years) is located at a distance 150 million light-years from Earth, much smaller NGC 5963 with extraordinarily faint blue spiral arms (~ a low surface brightness galaxy and difficult target) "only" some 40 MLY.
