Object name: ARP215
ARP 215, NGC 2782, is thought to be the result of two galaxies that have almost merged. The core is still elongated and appears double at some wavelengths. The debris of the merger hasn't yet merged with the resulting galaxy but likely will. It is classed as SAB(rs)a and is a starburst galaxy. Some consider it a Seyfert 1 galaxy. Others say this is an illusion due to the massive star formation going on in its merging nuclei. The galaxy is about 125 million light-years distant and is found in southwest Lynx, north of 38 Lynx. It was discovered by William Herschel on March 18, 1878 but isn't in either Herschel 400 observing programs.
