Object name: ARP287
Designation(s): ARP287, NGC2735, PGC25402,
ARP 287 is a pair of interacting galaxies, also known as NGC 2735 and NGC 2735A, located in northern Cancer. Arp put these in his category: Double galaxies, Wind effects. In fact, it is the very first entry in this category. Arp said of the pair: "Slanted parallel streamers off each edge of main galaxy." That certainly is the case. They certainly are strange compared to the standard plumes seen in interacting galaxies. Many years ago I spent many days playing with software to model interacting galaxies. I found it easy to make all varieties of "normal plumes" seen in his catalog but I never could make the "wind effect" type no matter what I did. Such software was primitive (as was the computer) compared to today's, still, I've not seen a simulation that creates these types of plumes. If anyone has run across one please let me know. Besides the streamers note that there is a dust lane between them that extends completely across the main galaxy to the companion. So are the streamers really coming from the companion as the dust lane appears to be? Seems possible to me.
