NGC 918 is a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Aries about 67 million light years from the Milky Way. It was discovered by John Herschel on Jan 11, 1831.[4]

The brightness class of NGC 918 is III and has a broad HI line. NGC 918 is also an active nucleus galaxy (AGN). Moreover, it is a galaxy of the field , that is to say, it does not belong to a cluster or group and is therefore gravitationally isolated.[5]

Many non-redshift measures give a distance of 19,115 ± 6,160 Mpc (~62,3 million ly),[6] which is within the distances calculated using the value shift.[3]

Supernova 2009[edit]

Supernova SN 2009js was discovered in this galaxy October 11, 2009 at 17.2 magnitude.[5][7][8][9] This was the first subluminous supernova to be studied in infrared wavelengths. [10]

Supernova 2011[edit]

Supernova SN 2011ek was discovered on Aug. 4, 2011 by Koichi Itagaki at 16.4 magnitude.[11][12]
