When was Cartwheel Galaxy discovered ?

The Cartwheel Galaxy is a lenticular galaxy and ring galaxy located at distance of about 500 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor. It was discovered by Fritz Zwicky in 1941. The large Cartwheel galaxy is the dominant member of the Cartwheel galaxy group, which consists of four physically associated spiral galaxies. The three companions are referred to in several studies as G1 - the smaller irregular blue Magellanic spiral, G2 - the yellow compact spiral with a tidal tail, and G3 - a more distant spiral often seen in wide field images.
