Re:NGC 5102
NGC 5102. NGC 5102 is a gas-rich lenticular galaxy that shows evidence
for recent star formation activity in the central region (Danks et al.
1979; Deharveng et al. 1997). HST observations show dust signatures
in the core of this galaxy (van Dokkum & Franx 1995). In the SED of this
galaxy (with a wide range of observations available) presented in Fig. 4
we see a clear excess over the stellar emission between the 9.62 and the
15 micron bands. As in the case of NGC 1399 this coincides with the 9.7
micron silicate dust band (see also Athey et al. 2002).

Re:NGC 5102
NGC 5102. This lenticular galaxy with an angular size of 8.6'x2.7' was
excentered in the WFPC2 to decrease the effect of stellar crowding.
Besides the strong branch of red giants, a small number of blue stars
are present in the galaxy CMD. The detected HI emission indicates that
NGC 5102 has a considerable amount of gas (~ 2x10^8^M_{sun}) and hence a
strong potential to form stars. The distance modulus, 27.66+-0.25,
derived by us from the TRGB agrees with the modulus $27.47+-0.22
obtained by McMillan & Ciardullo (1994) via the luminosity of planetary

This print of NGC 5102 is from a Swope
40-inch Las Campanas plate. The galaxy is a
prototypical S0 in which the extended envelope
of low surface brightness is clearly visible. The
galaxy is excessively blue for its S0 type (Sandage
and Visvanathan 1978a,b). Its neutral hydrogen
content is also high for its type. Recent star
formation has evidently occurred.
Its very low velocity in the frame of the
Local Group, v_o = 183 km/s, place it just
beyond the Local Group; it is presumably a
member of the NGC 5128 Group, which also contains
the late-type RSA galaxies NGC 5236 (SBc;
panels 300, 301) and NGC 5068 (SBc; panel
306). The absolute magnitude of M_BT_ = -18.7
puts NGC 5102 among the faintest S0 galaxies in
the RSA, yet it is brighter by 3 mag than the dS0
galaxy NGC 205. Its blue colors are consistent
with the faint absolute magnitude, as judged from
the color-absolute magnitude relation (Sandage
and Visvanathan 1978a,b).

Re:NGC 5102
NGC 5102; SA0 pec, starburst.
This low-luminosity galaxy is very blue in the optical and has subsolar
metal abundance (Bica & Alloin 1987; Bica 1988; Glass & Moorwood 1984).
IR observations (Glass & Moorwood 1984) and population synthesis of the
visible spectrum (Bica & Alloin 1987) suggest a burst of star formation,
which occurred about 4 X 10^8^ yr ago. A detailed analysis of the visible
spectrum suggests an underlying metal- poor red (old) population;
residual weak emission lines and a small H II region continuum
contribution agree with the age of the burst (Bica 1988). The spectrum is
flat with strong absorption lines typical of mid- to late-B stars.
