Description


NED Cone Search service (search for objects Near Position): The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) provides a comprehensive fusion of multi-wavelength data for hundreds of millions of objects located beyond the Milky Way galaxy. This service searches NED's master list of extragalactic objects for entries near a given position. NED's position interpreter recognizes most of the standard position (coordinate) formats used in astronomy.
