Object name: ARP164
Arp 164/NGC 455 is a merger remnant in Pisces some 250 million light-years distant. Arp put it in his category for galaxies with diffuse elements. It appears these diffuse elements are looping tidal trails of stars ripped from the merging galaxy showing the path of the merging galaxy as it was torn apart orbiting the larger galaxy. The NGC Project classifies it simply as peculiar. NED says S?. It likely will settle down to become an elliptical galaxy. It was discovered by Albert Marth on October 27, 1864.
