An 11th-magnitude barred spiral galaxy (type
SBa pec) in Aquarius. Apparent size about 4.5 by 3.5 arcmin (not
counting the outer arms, which cover nearly 6 arcmin). two
interacting spiral galaxies, which collided about a billion
years ago (based on the age of star clusters formed in the
collision) and should "soon" (after another billion years or so)
settle down to what appears to be a single galaxy.
