Object name: UGC00240
UGC 240 is another galaxy that Arp could have put in his Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies but didn't. It has a great plume to the west and some hints of one to the east. It's close companion LEDA 212513 is accused of the crime of creating the plume. It seems way to small to have so damaged a much bigger galaxy without significant harm to itself. No distance measurement has apparently been made for it so I assume it is possible it isn't even related. UGC 240 is classified as SAB(rs)b with a redshift that puts it about 380 million light-years distant though a single Tully-Fisher measurement shows it 100 million light-years closer. Including the west plume, it is some 150,000 light-years across assuming the redshift distance (110,000 using the Tully Fisher distance). The main disk is 100,000 light-years across at the longer distance, 75,000 at the closer distance. The field is in central Pisces.
