Tiger’s Eye Galaxy (NGC 2841) in Ursa Major
NGC 2841 is one of the finest examples of a multi-arm, intermediate-type (Sb) spiral galaxy in heavens. It belongs to the Leo Spur of galaxies and stands up well against many Messier galaxies. In true physical structure, NGC 2841 is a modest one, having a linear diameter of only 38’500 light-years at a distance of about 46 million light-years.
