IC 2233 Facts

IC 2233 is a low surface brightness galaxy object of interest in space. It lies at a distance of about 40,000,000.00 light years away in the constellation of Lynx.

It is also referred to as IC2233 which is short for Index Catalogue number 2233. The Index Catalogue is an update to the earlier NGC catalogue.

The Low Surface Brightness Galaxy's location is 08 13 58.909 (R.A.) and +45 44 31.74 (Dec.). Its Visual (Apparent) Brightness is 12.63 Magnitude . The object can not be seen by the naked eye from Earth, you need a telescope to see it.

Travel Time to IC 2233

The time it will take to travel to this star is dependent on how fast you are going. U.G. has done some calculations as to how long it will take going at differing speeds. A note about the calculations, when I'm talking about years, I'm talking non-leap years only (365 days).

The New Horizons space probe is the fastest probe that we've sent into space at the time of writing. Its primary mission was to visit Pluto which at the time of launch (2006), Pluto was still a planet.
