Pair

NGC 2968 may form a physical pair with
NGC 2964 (Sc; panels 240, 251). The redshifts
are v_o(2964) = 1292 km/s and v_o(2968) =
1576 km/s. The angular separation is 6.2'. The
projected linear separation would be 53 kpc
using a redshift distance of 29 Mpc (H = 50).
The chaotic dust pattern silhouetted against
the background S0/Am main body shows no rotational
organization, similar to the chaos in NGC
4753 on the preceding panel, and probably in
NGC 2911, above, as well.

NGC 2968 is also illustrated and described
in the S0 section on panel 49. It forms a triplet
with NGC 2964 (Sc; panels 240, 251) at a
separation of 6.3' and with NGC 2970 (S0_3_ not
in the RSA) at a separation of 5.0'. The redshifts
are v_o(2968) = 1551 km/s, v_o(2970) = 1629 km/s,
and v_o(2964) = 1292 km/s. At the mean
redshift distance of 30 Mpc (H = 50) the
projected linear separation of NGC 2964 from
NGC 2968 is 55 kpc and the separation of
NGC 2970 from NGC 2968 is 44 kpc. A physical
association between NGC 2968 and NGC 2970
is assured by the circumstance that a supernova
occurred (SN 1970L, discovered by Wild) on the
luminous bridge connecting NGC 2968 and NGC 2970.
A photograph of the configuration is in
Tammann (1973).
The Amorphous classification of NGC 2968
is based on the character of the dust (similar to
that in M82 and NGC 3077).

Re:NGC 2968
NGC 2968 is a small Irregular galaxy included because it is the companion
of NGC 2964, 6.3' (33 kpc) away, which was detected. This is one of the
few survey galaxies undetected by IRAS. The color indices, B-V, = 1.0 and
U-B = 0.65 (RC2) make it the reddest galaxy in our sample.
