Object name: UGC09829
As those who have followed me for some time know, I love peculiar galaxies. The more peculiar the better. Arp compiled an atlas of 338 of them in the mid-1960's when they were poorly understood. But there are far more strange ones he didn't include. Many as peculiar or more so than those he put in his atlas. This is one of my favorites. Something seemed to prevent me from catching it for some time but finally, I was able to bag it after all these years. Why such a strange object isn't better known I don't know.
