Suspected nature of object

Arc or gravitational distortion


Galaxy SDSS J084531.38+201927.2 is showing a curved anomaly to its North. It could be matter of the galaxy itself, or another galaxy interacting gravitationally with the galaxy. The arc ends into a slightly compact node, could this be a Low Surface Brightness galaxy interacting?
