NGC 2841 is an inclined, unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major that exhibits a prominent inner ring structure. It was discovered on 9 March 1788 by William Herschel. Initially thought to be about 30 million light-years distant, a 2001 Hubble Space Telescope survey of the galaxy's Cepheid variables determined its distance to be approximately 14.1 megaparsecs or 46 million light-years.
