The symmetrical brightening at two opposite
places on the rim of the disk in NGC 2962 (called
the lens in the Hubble Atlas) is the bar, defined
by analogy with the clearer cases of the same
pattern in NGC 3300 (SB0_3_/a; panel 89), NGC
936 (SB0_2/3_/SBa; panel 90), and NGC 2983 and
NGC 2787 (panel 95).
The very-low-surface-brightness outer
structure resembles a ring. However, as usual, it
is a tightly wound set of nearly overlapping spiral
arms having very-low-surface-brightness connections
with the central regions, not easily visible in
this print. The connections begin at the ansae,
which are the two brightenings on the rim of the
lens. These connections to the central,
high-surface-brightness lens occur at position angles
of about 3 and 9 o'clock. The connections at first
are straight and then suddenly curve into a spiral
pattern opening in a counterclockwise direction
going outward.
The pattern is the earliest example in this
atlas of this type of connection of external spiral
arms to the central disk (the lens). The later
prototype example is the Sb galaxy NGC 210
(Sb; Hubble Atlas, p. 22; panel 124 here). However,
there is a set of inner, high-surface-brightness
arms in NGC 210 that are embedded in a
high-surface-brightness disk. But although no
inner arms exist here, the set of outer arms
resembles the outer arms in galaxies of the NGC
210 type. Galaxies with this morphology are
said, on the following panels, to have the NGC
210 look.
