NGC 5967 forms a physical pair with
NGC 5967A at an angular separation of 8.3'. The
v_o redshifts are 2657 km/s and 2714 km/s,
respectively. At the mean redshift distance of 54
Mpc (H = 50) the projected linear separation is
The inclination of NGC 5967 to the sight
line is sufficiently high that the central region
appears to be oval. However, the major axis of
the central image has the same position angle as
that of the outer spiral arms. By viewing the
image obliquely by holding this page at an angle
and rotating for the proper position angle of the
major axis, a decision can be made that the
morphological type is Sc rather than SBc.
Overexposed center, very knotty arms. Several stars superposed. Optical pair
with NGC 5967A at 8.3.
Bright nucleus, very faint bar, incomplete (r): 0.8 x 0.7.
