Arp 141 is class Material Emanating from E Galaxies. It is located
southeast of center in this field. Arp 141 is also cataloged as UGC 3730.
The Atlas image shows many more tiny knots in the big loop on the south side
than mine does,
but my image, especially the 2X detail, does show some of the larger and
brighter ones. This object looks to me like the elliptical at the
N may have passed through the loop on the S, but I'm not aware of any
research to indicate that.
The galaxy just S of the star near the W side is a very turbulent spiral.
