NGC 925 (UGC 1913) - barred spiral galaxy type SBc/Sc in Triangulum
Discovered by William Herschel in 1784.
NGC 925 (UGC 1913) is a very asymmetric galaxy with a strong spiral arm in the south and flocculent arms in the north. NGC 925 has at least 132 cataloged HII regions. It is about 45 million light-years away. The real diameter of the galaxy is nearly 100000 light-years. Delicate spiral arms extend outward from the central bar. Older yellowish suns dominate the central bar, while blue-white star clusters and red hydrogen emission nebulae make up the spiral arms.
