NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1998MNRAS.293...53T The discovery of a giant debris arc in the Coma cluster Neil Trentham and Bahram Mobasher Accepted 1997 August 29. Received 1997 July 18; in original form 1996 November 18 ABSTRACT We present the discovery of a giant low-surface-brightness arc, of length 80 kpc, in the Coma cluster. The arc consists of a diffuse luminous matrix with surface brightness {mu}_B_ < 26.5 mag arcsec and a number of embedded condensations. It is not associated with any giant galaxy in Coma in particular; neither does it have the properties of a gravitational arc. We argue that a fast interaction between the nearby barred S0 galaxy IC 4026 and either IC 4041 or RB 110 is the most natural explanation for the origin of the arc. Key words: galaxies: clusters: individual: Coma - galaxies: interactions.
