NGC 4414 is an unbarred spiral galaxy about 62 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. It is a flocculent spiral galaxy, with short segments of spiral structure but without the dramatic well-defined spiral arms of a grand design spiral. In 1974 a supernova, SN 1974G, was observed and was the only supernova in this galaxy to be recorded until June 7, 2013 when SN 2013df was discovered at Magnitude 14.

Although NGC 4414's center likely holds little dark matter, understanding its matter distribution helps calibrate the rest of the galaxy and, by deduction, flocculent spirals in general. By determining a precise distance to NGC 4414, astronomers also hope to help calibrate the scale to the more distant universe. Tomorrow's picture: Comet Over Colorado. Specific rights apply
NGC 4414 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation of Coma Berenices. It is a good example of a spiral galaxy, with its well defined spiral structure and features often seen in spiral galaxies, such as large dust lanes. However, it does not possess distinct spiral arms and as such, it is not a grand design spiral galaxy. Instead it is classified as a flocculent spiral. The galaxy is a member of the Coma I cluster, not far from the Virgo cluster of galaxies.
