Arp 270 (NGC 3395 & 6)

  Arp 270 is in the class Double Galaxies with Connected Arms.  The Atlas note is "note arc form of emission knots".  The southwestern member is NGC 3395 and the eastern galaxy is NGC 3396.  There is a large faint tidal bubble extending northwest from the intersection of the two galaxies.  This does not really show in the Atlas image.
