NGC 2807A is a Spiral Galaxy in the Cancer constellation. NGC 2807A is situated close to the celestial equator and, as such, it is at least partly visible from both hemispheres in certain times of the year. Given its B magnitude of 15.1, NGC 2807A is visible with the help of a telescope having an aperture of 20 inches (500mm) or more.

The image below is a photograph of NGC 2807A from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2 - see the credits section) taken in the red channel. The area of sky represented in the image is 0.5000x0.5000 degrees (30.00x30.00 arcmins).
