The edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 1055 in the constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster)

This chart shows the location of the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 1055 in the constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster). It shows most stars visible to the unaided eye on a dark and clear night. The galaxy, marked with a red circle and close to the brighter galaxy Messier 77, can be seen with a moderate amateur telescope as a faint elongated smudge.
