Nice post! Very cool examples.

224.3729, 1.3518 could be a nice Voorwerp candidate imo because of the blue patches at 12 and 6 o’clock, especially the lower one, very nice dark blue colour to it

No clue if it is a candidate already, you’d have to check on GZ

Two main galaxies are in the act of merger, with a third galaxy at the bottom of the pair as being effect by the merge.
Stars can be seen to the above and below the pair.

wow :astonished:

If you view the DR7 image gallery, then you find galaxies listed under "Halton Arp’s atlas of peculiar galaxies. They contain lots of galaxy mergers. An extended “VV” catalog is also available if you type “VV” from 1-853 of 853 peculiar galaxies, over 2.7 times of that of the aftermentioned catalog.

Smaller galaxies punching above their weight. There’s the smaller spiral galaxy and in the bottom arm of the larger open spiral is another dwarf galaxy, formed from the interactions of the other two?

Something strange? The red object at the bottom of the arc is further away, but it looks like it’s taken a bite out of the arc.

Okay for others to post on your thread?

Here is what Simbad calls “Galaxy in Pair of Galaxies” NGC 1482
https://www.legacysurvey.org/viewer?ra=58.6626&dec=-20.5029&layer=ls-dr10&zoom=12
It has a fairly magnificent dust lane.

Apparently NGC 1482 has been studied fairly rigorously due to it’s substantial molecular gas outflow.
