Description

NGC 1316 is interacting with the compact galaxy NGC 1317. However, the elaboration has revealed the presence of a weak non-cataloged structure, apparently an irregular galaxy (top center). I propose the negative image to better appreciate the detail..
The image is a composition of DSS plates and pointings WISE in the mid-infrared.
