Description
Here is a picture of NGC 4725. This is a barreled spiral galaxy about 40 million light years away in the constellation of Coma Berenices. Also visible in the image are NGC 4712 to the right and NGC 4747 in the upper left. NGC 4712 is about 207 million light years away. The faint "tails" you see on NGC 4747 are cause by tidal interactions with NGC 4725.
