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.
