Nov 7/8, 1980
The spiral pattern of NGC 1376 is similar
to that of NGC 309 at the upper left except that
the inner ring is absent; the inner arms begin at
the nucleus as in M101 (Hubble Atlas, pp. 27,
31; panel 218 here) rather than in the (r)
pattern as in prototype NGC 309.
The redshift of NGC 1376 is v_o = 4198 km/s.
Non-interacting pair with an anonymous spiral south-preceding at 5.3 arcmin.
Small, bright nucleus.
Many filamentary knotty arms.
Very similar to Messier 101.
Non-interacting pair with anonymous small spiral at 5.3 arcmin.
Very complicated form. The spiral arms depart from an eccentric bar.
[L] not in center. The major axis of the inner spiral (or is this a Bar?),
and disk with arcs are mutually perpendicular.
