NGC 7315 is a lenticular galaxy in the constellation of Pegasus.[2] It was discovered on 11 September 1872 by Édouard Stephan.[5] It was described as "very faint, extremely small, round, brighter middle" by John Louis Emil Dreyer, the compiler of the New General Catalogue.[5]

SN 2007B, a type Ia supernova, was discovered in NGC 7315 in January 2007.[6]
