Arp 132

  Arp 132 is the final member of the class E-like Galaxies Perturbing Spirals.  The Atlas note points out "radio source M11-02 is 3' N".  There was more than normal "space junk" during this image set.  The brighter trail south of the galaxies, running E-W, is probably a satellite while the fainter one just east of the galaxies, at a little angle from N-S, is most likely a meteor.

It is a poorly guided image with insufficient exposure time and replacement is planned.
