March 24/25, 1980
NGC 4224 is in the Virgo Cluster region at
the western border (near the W cloud) of the area
surveyed for the cluster catalog (Binggeli,
Sandage, and Tammann 1985). The VCC redshift
of v_o = 2603 km/s puts the galaxy in the
probable background (i.e., in the W cloud).
The disk inside the dust lane is filled with
spiral structure, both as luminous arcs and as
internal dust lanes, only hinted at in the print
here. Part of the bulge light is visible below the
dust lane in this highly inclined galaxy.
