AM 2105-632

A spiral galaxy that recently went through some interactive process, resulting in some stars strewn hither and thither. This viewpoint allows us to see that sections of the disk have been inclined away from the original plane of the galaxy. Dust fades into the background as soon as it loses its stellar backlight.


A nice, color, widefield view of this galaxy is available at the Legacy Survey viewer:
