Arp 70

  Arp 70, also cataloged as UGC 934, is class Spirals with Small HSB Companions on Arms.  In this case, I believe the companion is the bright galaxy located SSW of the core.  If you look very carefully, the north arm takes a sharp bend south just before the bright star.  This arm can't be traced all the way on my images and I can't completely connect it to the galaxy on the Atlas image but this still seems like the most reasonable interpretation.  There is no Atlas note to clarify it.
