NGC4725

NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy with a prominent ring structure about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole, similar to galaxy M106, photographed in one of my earlier posts this year.
