NGC 2523 is the bright barred spiral galaxy on the right side of
this image. If you were to turn NGC 2523 so that it was edge-on, it
would look very much like NGC 2523B- the slender galaxy towards the
left edge of the field. While these galaxies are not interacting
with each other, they are both around 150 million light years
