Galaxy Candidate Snickers,
"Discovered" by S. Christian Simonson, III. in 1975.
- -90 km/s
- 55 kly
- Apparent Dimension:
- 420 x 120 arc min
- Abs. Mag:
This galaxy candidate was discovered by radio observations in 1975
(Simonson 1975), and is since subject for dispute.
If real, it is extremely poor in stars and of very low surface brightness, and
perhaps more an intergalactic hydrogen cloud than a manifest galaxy.
