Description

Arp 188 is a disrupted barred spiral galaxy located 420 million light-years from Earth in the constellation of Draco. Its most dramatic feature is a massive trail of stars about 280,000 light-years long; the size of the galaxy has been attributed to a merger with a smaller galaxy that is believed to have occurred about 100 million years ago.
