UGC 3697 is a galaxy in Camelopardalis constellation, called also “The Integral Sign Galaxy” due to its inusual shape.
This edge-on super thin galaxy galaxy has magnitude 12.9 and dimension 3’x0.2’; it is located approximately 151 million light- years away.
Its warping is probably the result of interaction with the dwarf galaxy UGC 3714, the bright round galaxy on the bottom right of UGC 3697.
