Object name: UGC00006
Designation(s): UGC00006, UGC00011,
UGC 6 is a merger in progress in the eastern side of the Great Square of Pegasus. It is located about 280 million light-years by redshift and about 330 million light-years by Tully Fisher. The odd loops are likely stars ripped from the merging galaxy and mark its path of doom. I didn't realize it also had very faint sprays of stars that arc around it from the northwest to the southwest. They extend some 120,000 light-years from the galaxy's core.
