The Antennae Galaxies in the constellation of Corvus

This chart shows the location — marked with an open red circle — of the Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and 4039) in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow). This chart shows the stars that can be seen with the unaided eye from a dark site. The interacting galaxies can be seen as a small double hazy patch through moderate-sized amateur telescopes.
