Object name: ARP334
ARP 334 is located in the constellation of Canes Venatici at about 340 million light-years. Arp put it in his Miscellaneous class. His note gives no mention of why he thought it worthy of his atlas. His note simply notes that the second star to the south is not quite stellar. That's even more obvious in my image. Arp 334 is otherwise known as UGC 8498 and is classed as Sb at NED. It has some faint tidal spray and an apparent hole in its disk in the area of the southern galaxy. Are the two related? Wish I knew. The nearly stellar galaxy is SDSS J133025.68+313617.6. But the survey didn't take any redshift data on it so no way to know its approximate distance. Something apparently disturbed Arp 334 and it is as good a candidate for the mugging as any in the area.
