Arp 119

  Arp 119 is in Arp's class E-like Galaxies Perturbing Spirals.  It is the brighter pair of galaxies just northwest of the center of the field.  If you are going through the pages in order, this is the third time you've seen this image.  Arp 48 is the little group down in the southeast corner and the tiny galaxy close to the west edge, about 25% of the way down from the top of the field, is Arp 88.

The Atlas note says "some material seems attracted, some repelled".  The southern member of the pair has been distorted into a fan shape and the arms are full of knots.  That is visible in my image, especially the 2x detail image below, but is much more obvious in the Atlas image.
