      Description

      NGC 3718 is an 'S' shaped and heavily warped spiral or lenticular galaxy located at a distance of fifty-two million light years in the constellation Ursa Major. The distortion to its shape likely comes from gravitational interactions with another galaxy,  possibly with NGC 3729, the spiral galaxy located to the right in this image. Just above NGC 3718 is a cluster of interacting galaxies cataloged as Hickson 56.
