Arp 167 (NGC 2672 & 3)

  Arp 167 is in the class Diffuse Counter-Tails.  The Atlas note says "comp. galaxy very condensed, has curved plume."  It is not easy to find the counter-tail in the Atlas image and very difficult in my image.  There are two tails exiting the smaller galaxy (NGC 2673), one on the southeast side and a fainter one on the north side.
