DAGAL Image Gallery - NGC 3628

About this image: The edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 3628 is a member of the same compact group of galaxies as M65 and M66, the Leo Triplet. Our view from its galactic core is blocked by an obscuring dust lane. Its thick flaring disk is a likely product of past interactions with other galaxies from the neighborhood.

The images on this page were produced by the DAGAL network, and can be used free of charge provided acknowledgement is given to "DAGAL, Nik Szymanek, SDSS, and S4G, www.dagalnetwork.eu".
