NGC 5714 Facts Spiral Galaxy in Boötes

NGC 5714 is a spiral galaxy object of interest in space. It lies at a distance of about 130,000,000.00 light years away in the constellation of Boötes.

It is also referred to as NGC(5714) in the New General Catalogue. This is a list of deep space objects that was compiled by John Louis Emil Dreyer in 1888 in an update to John Herschel earlier catalogue. NGC 5714 was discovered in 1787 by William Herschel.

The Spiral Galaxy's location is 14 38 9.96 (R.A.) and 46 38 22.57 (Dec.). Its Visual (Apparent) Brightness is 13.40 Magnitude . The object can not be seen by the naked eye from Earth, you need a telescope to see it.

Travel Time to NGC 5714

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.
