Description

Don't hesitate too look at the full field :-)

Arp 84 is also known as the Heron Galaxy. It takes little imagination to see a blue heron's body, complete with neck, head and a beak reaching out to a nearby fish.

NGC 5395 and 5394 , also known as Arp 84, are two interacting galaxies in the constellation Canes Venatici. The larger, NGC 5395, is at a distance 165 million light-years and NGC 5394 is 162 million light-years away.
Also a small elliptical galaxy (member of the Virgo I galaxy group), to the upper left of NGC 5394, is IC 4356, at a distance of about 675 million light-years.

NGC5378 and NGC5380 can also be seen on the full field view
