This image shows you a spiral galaxy of IC356 in center of Camelopardalis.
The galaxy has a reddish color because obstructed by inner-galactic gases.
We can hardly appreciate structures of spirals, this image shows us only elliptical galaxy-like figures.
A large spiral galaxy of IC342 has been positioned only 2 degrees southwest of this galaxy.
