Arp 227 consists of two galaxies in the constellation Pisces: the large lenticular galaxy ly across) NGC 474 about 93 mly away; and the spiral galaxy NGC 470 about 95 mly away. They lie at a separation of about ly.
NGC 3718 (Arp 214) Distance: 42.4 Million Light Years NGC 3718 and its companion NGC 3729 are physically related members of the Ursa Major galaxy cluster. The two galaxies appear to orbit each other at a projected separation of 147,000 light years. NGC 3718 seems to have a rudimentary bar and spiral structure although it is recognized as a peculiar galaxy and as such is listed within Arp's Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. via Dark Matter on Facebook by stephanii
