NGC 679 is an elliptical[3][4][5] or a lenticular galaxy[6][4][5] located 210 million light-years away[6] in the constellation Andromeda. The galaxy was discovered by astronomer William Herschel on September 13, 1784[7] and is a member of Abell 262.[8][9][10][11][12]

It is also a radio galaxy.[13]

Dust Disk[edit]

NGC 679 hosts a nearly face-on disk of dust with a diameter of ~9,800 ly (3 kpc).[3]
