NGC 3347 and NGC 3358

NGC 3347 is an elongated spiral galaxy, while NGC 3358 is a face-on lenticular galaxy There is a barely visible faint tidal stream between NGC 3347 and the smaller round spiral NGC 3354. Both NGC 3347 and NGC 3354 have similar red-shifts, suggesting that this is a genuine association and not merely a line-of-sight coincidence.
