The galaxy was discovered by English astronomer William Herschel on November 28, 1785.
The galaxy, viewed from almost face on, appears to be in the midst of a merger with its smaller companion galaxy, NGC 153. The galaxy has several bright, blue, dusty spiral arms filled with active star formation. One noticeable feature of the galaxy is a large gap between arms, possibly caused by the gravitational pull of its smaller companion.
