Deep Sky
M95
Barred-spiral galaxy


Constellation: Leo
Mag 9.7
Part of the M96 group of galaxies, this one doesn't have a name.  It is approx 38 million light-years from earth.  Since the arms are nearly circular, it is sometimes referred to as a ringed galaxy.  M95 has recently shown to have a supernova earlier this year 2012.  Always an exciting time for those looking at the sky.
