Re:NGC 4461
VCC 1158
Feb 3/4, 1979

NGC 4461 is in the Virgo Cluster near the
subcluster A associated with NGC 4486. The
departure from circularity in the luminosity
pattern in the otherwise normal S0_2_ disk is subtle,
but definite. The departure from circularity is
the spiral pattern. To fix the eye so as to better
trace the pattern in this print, note that the sense
of the spiral pattern is counterclockwise from the
outside inward for each of the arms emerging
from the bulge at about 1 o'clock and 7 o'clock
on this image.
