Object name: ARP046
Arp 46 falls under Arp's category "Spiral Galaxies: Small, high surface brightness companions on arms. The big spiral, UGC 12667, is not Arp 46. Arp 46 is the much smaller, distorted spiral down to the right (southwest) of the bigger spiral. Arp 46 consists of UGC 12665, the distorted spiral and its small companion VV 314b. Arp's comment: "Companion connected to main spiral." I'm not all that convinced that is correct. There is a nice tidal arm coming from VV 314b and overlapping UGC 12665. But I see no way to tell if they are connected. Most likely they aren't. But that tidal plum is nice in the 2x enlargement.
