Hi all,

Today, there is a third image being uploaded. This time, it is a beautiful one-armed barred galaxy, NGC 4725. There is several peculiarities linked to this galaxy, but one of the most interesting is that it is interacting gravitationally with another spiral (NGC 4747, not in the picture). As a result of this interaction, part of the tidal tail formed by the stars, that have been expelled from NGC 4747, have formed a Tidal Dwarf Galaxy (TDG) by themselves. You can find the image and more information at:
