39. NGC 5364 is a very regular Sc spiral of medium inclination. The regular
spirals always give excellent fit results and low residua (Fig. 6 in
on-line version).

Re:NGC 5364
Triplet [with NGC 5360 and NGC 5363]

NGC 5364 has one of the most regular
spiral patterns of all the RSA galaxies. The arms
start tangent to a complete inner ring. The ring
is not made by the near overlapping of opposite
principal arms, as is the usual case. It is fed by
two spiral arcs that start near the center. The
description in the Hubble Atlas of the outer arms
is still valid and is not repeated here.
NGC 5364, with a redshift v_o = 1140 km/s,
forms a physical triplet with NGC 5360
(BCD; not in the RSA; v_o = 1060 km/s) at a
separation of 7.7', and with NGC 5363 (S0_3_ in
the RSA but not shown in this atlas; v_o = 1018
km/s) at a separation of 14.4'. At the mean
redshift distance of 21 Mpc (H = 50) the
projected linear separations from NGC 5364 are
47 kpc and 88 kpc, respectively. The large
morphological difference between NGC 5363 (S0)
and NGC 5364 (Sc) is noteworthy.

Re:NGC 5364
NGC 5364 is an extremely regular galaxy and was put in the disturbed
class because the spiral arms wind "too much" and there are several
galaxies very nearby. There is also an inner spiral ending at the
CO/optical ring. NGC 5364 is the only "disturbed" galaxy detected with
an S_60_/S_100_ ratio < 0.3.

NGC 5364 is one of the most regular galaxies in the sky.
The thin, bright, internal ring appears to be completely
closed. There is spiral structure internal to this ring, but
the inner arms starting from the nucleus are not well defined.
The regular outer arms begin tangent to the bright ring.
Two external arms are present. Their junction on
the ring is difficult to find. The outer arm on the west
side probably begins on the ring at nearly the west cardinal
point. The beginning of the outer arm on the east side
is near the north cardinal point. The outer west arm can
be traced for about 450 degrees from its origin on the ring. The
outer east arm can be traced for 540 degrees or one and a half
revolutions from its origin. Dust lanes are not conspicuous
over the face of this spiral, but faint lanes can be traced
on the insides of the two main arms.
The redshift of NGC 5364 is 1,357 km/sec (corrected
for solar motion), which corresponds to a distance modulus
of about (m-M) = 31.3. At this distance, the average
angular width of the outer spiral arms corresponds to a
linear width of 700 parsecs. This is larger by a factor of
about 2 than the arms in NGC 488 and M101 but somewhat
smaller than the arms in NGC 4254 (pg. 29 of the Hubble Atlas),
for example. The spacing between the center of the outer arms
on the west side is about 3300 parsecs.
