    I thought this pic is fantastic....Wish I could see the galaxy it is colliding with....That tidal tail is super long and goes out of the frame. Is there a way to check out the whole scene?

    #ARP_295B. A tidal tail does not necessarily indicate a merger. Galactic material can be exchanged exchanged through close encounters and flybys or galaxy pairs. NED lists this as a #GPair. You can view this very long tail in SkyServer.
