Arp 216

Stellar streams looping around a disturbed spiral galaxy with a bit of dust and star formation evident. A widefield view shows barred spiral galaxy NGC 7682 just to the east. NGC 7682 seems relatively undisturbed by comparison, so one wonders if the two have anything to do with one another.
