Object name: ARP307
Designation(s): ARP307, NGC2872, NGC2874, NGC2875,
ARP 307 falls under his class: Group Character: Group of Galaxies. It is located in Leo with has more than its share of galaxy groups. Arp's comment: "Possibly not interacting." It consists of three galaxies, NGC 2872, NGC 2873 and NGC 2874. Not exactly right to left. NGC 2872 is the big E2 elliptical. Redshift data puts it at about 160 million light years distant. NGC 2873 is also about 160 million light-years distant by redshift. NED doesn't give a Classification. The NGC Project says Sb which seems reasonable. It certainly is a red spiral, a new class of galaxy to come out of the Galaxy Zoo project. This leaves the big barred spiral, NGC 2874, also a red spiral or maybe a normal spiral in the process of turning red as most new star formation has apparently long ceased with the massive blue stars long dead but some slightly blue ones left in a few knots. Classed at NED as SB(r)bc and questionably (to me) as Sc by the NGC Project. It seems a very obvious barred spiral. Though the Hubble Space Telescope image makes the bar less obvious. Redshift data puts it at 180 million light years distant. This could be due to random motions in the group or could really mean it is unrelated. I lean toward it being part of the group as there appears to be a hint of interaction at the southwest end.
