Re:NGC 2937
J0937+0245. This S+E pair isArp 142 (=VV316), classified as "ring galaxy"
by RC2 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1976). The S component (NGC 2936) is very
disrupted. The optical/NIR morphology looks like a bird head, with the
nucleus being the eye. The tidal tails, which form the "neck" of the bird,
contain several star-forming regions bright in the IR (see the 8 and 24
micron image). However, most of the dust emission is still confined within
the nucleus+disk (i.e. the bird head) region. The E component (NGC 2937)
is undetected in the 70 and 160 micron bands.
