NGC 5005 (also known as Caldwell
29) is a spiral galaxy in the constellation of Canes Venatici. It's
measured distance has ranged between 45 and 113 light years away.
It was discovered by William Herschel in 1785.
This galaxy has as a low-ionization
nuclear emission-line region nucleus. This means that the gas at
its center is emitting ionized gas. This is likely due to a super-massive
black hole at its core.
