NGC 4414, An Unbarred Spiral Galaxy


ngc-4414NGC 4414 is an unbarred spiral galaxy about 62 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. It has short segments of spiral structure but lacks the dramatic well-defined spiral arms of a grand design spiral galaxy. NGC 4414 is also a very isolated galaxy without signs of past interactions with other galaxies.
