Arp 202 (NGC 2719 & A)
Arp 202 is in the class Material Ejected from Nuclei, and is the galaxy pair
several minutes west and south of center. The Atlas note says "faint tail
from smaller galaxy", and it is very faint. I have to struggle to detect
it in the Atlas image. In the heavily processed detail image below, it
looks more like a string of discrete objects than a tail. It is the chain
of three objects beginning at the NW end of the secondary and heading WNW.
The Atlas image also appears to have some gaps. The primary is
NGC 2719 and the small lumpy secondary just below it is 2719A.
