NGC 17 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Cetus.

NGC 17 is the result of a merger between two disk galaxies, resulting in a recent starburst in the central regions and continuing starforming activity. The galaxy is still gas-rich, and has a single galactic nucleus. It lies 250 million light years away.
