PGC 32620 (with
PGC 32628 = Arp 107)
A 14th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type SABbc? pec) in Leo Minor (RA 10 52 14.9, Dec +30 03 29)
Apparent size about 2.35 by 1.9 arcmin, including the extension through its elliptical companion. Used in the Arp Atlas as an example of an elliptical galaxy (PGC 32628, which see for images) connected to a spiral galaxy.


PGC 32628 (with
PGC 32620 = Arp 107)
A 15th-magnitude elliptical galaxy (type E0 pec?) in Leo Minor (RA 10 52 18.5, Dec +30 04 21)
Apparent size about 0.4 by 0.4 arcmin. Used in the Arp Atlas as an example of an elliptical galaxy connected to a spiral galaxy (PGC 32620). (Note: The image of Arp 107 in the original Arp Atlas incorrectly shows north on the right; it is actually at the top, as in the images below.)

PGC 32772 (=
NGC 3445 = Arp 24)

PGC 32784
A 15th-(B)magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sm) in
Ursa Major (RA 10 54 44, Dec +56 58 58)
Probably gravitationally interacting with NGC 3445, which see for images of the pair. Based on recessional velocity of 1740 km/sec, about 80 million light years away. Given that and apparent size of 0.4 by 0.15 arcmin, about 9 thousand light years across.
