Re:NGC 3332
NGC 3332. - This galaxy is clearly disturbed in our R image with a large
armlike feature extending north of the galaxy. It is probably this feature
that has led to this galaxy's classification as an S0. While we cannot rule
out the possibility that this feature is an arm, in the unsharp-masked
image it looks very sharp and, thus, more like a shell. The R model-divided
image shows a quadrupole feature, which may indicate a disk. The R/K_s_
color map reveals red patches near the galaxy's center, which are
consistent with dust. This galaxy was detected by IRAS at 60 and 100
microns (Knapp et al. 1989).
