=MCG +06-32-002 = VV 142 = Arp 069 = NGC 5579, 5580; 14.7m.
Large H II regions concentrated on the opposite sides.
In this system a group of large H II regions at the upper left hand
corner, and a larger group below at the left, are remarkable peripheral
objects likely to transform into numerous irregular companions or
"isolated H II regions".
