An object selected by one of our members...a strange little galaxy with lots going on as per Wiki:

NGC 3432 is a spiral galaxy that can be found in the constellation Leo Minor. It is currently interacting with UGC 5983, a dwarf galaxy. Tidal filaments and intense star formation can also been seen from the interaction, which is why it was listed in Halton Arp's Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies.
