- Leo II is also a large collection of galaxy groups clustered about 30 million light-years
to one side of the Virgo Cluster.
- Leo II is also the name of a dwarf spheroidal (dE0)
galaxy that, at a distance of about 800,000 light-years, is a remote satellite galaxy of the Milky
Way (the second furthest, after Leo I) and
hence also a member of the Local Group.
Discovered in 1950, it has a diameter of about 4,200 light-years. Also
known as Leo B, it is catalogued variously as DDO 93,
UGC 6253, and Harrington-Wilson 2.
