Object name: NGC0072A

Designation(s): ARP113, NGC0067, NGC0068, NGC0069, NGC0070, NGC0072, NGC0074, NGC0067A, NGC0072A,

Arp 113 is in the Arp class \"Elliptical or Elliptical-like Galaxies close to perturbing spirals\". In fact, it\'s the first entry in that class. There are so many galaxies in this grouping I don\'t know which are the perturbed spirals and who is doing the perturbing! Arp made no comment on this group to help with this question. The entire group is larger than my field though Arp only was concerned with the dense core. It is known as the VV166 group with 15 members. VV stands for; Vorontsov-Velyaminov Interacting Galaxies. The group\'s average distance is just under 300 million light-years by redshift value. Many of the members are NGC galaxies. I\'ve attached an annotated small image of the core to help identify this region. The galaxies, their classification (when known, \"n/a\" when not available) and their redshift distance are in the table below in millions of light-years.
