This small, round Spiral Galaxy has a fairly
bright core. No sign of the spiral arms can be found even in
photos. Why is this called a spiral galaxy then? Actually,
Burnham's which is based on older data, lists NGC6703 as an
E0/S0 galaxy. Essentially a cross between an elliptical and a
spiral. Recent data suggests that this is simply an S0 - a
spiral without arms.
