NGC 341 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation Cetus. It was discovered on October 21, 1881 by Édouard Stephan. It was described by Dreyer as "faint, pretty large, round, a little brighter middle, mottled but not resolved." It has a companion galaxy, PGC 3627, which is sometimes called NGC 341B.[3] For this, reason, it has been included in Halton Arp's Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies.[4]
