NGC 134 in Sculptor
Spiral galaxy SAB(s)bc
Scu
Nov. 2019
North is right. NGC 134 shows a tidal tail at each end of the galaxy disk. They indicate interaction with other galaxies. On the left is the low surface brightness galaxy ESO 350-26, which also shows two tails and which is about the same distance as NGC 134. Also NGC 131 right below seems to have an tidal tail. This galaxy is a bit closer than NGC 134, but not much, so that these two could also have an interaction.
