NGC 134 in Sculptor
Spiral galaxy SAB(s)bc
North is right.
NGC 134 shows a tidal tail at each end of the galaxy disk. They indicate
interaction with other galaxies. On the left is the low surface brightness
galaxy ESO 350-26, which also shows two tails and which is about
the same distance as NGC 134.
Also NGC 131 right below seems to have an tidal tail. This galaxy is a bit
closer than NGC 134, but not much, so that these two
could also have an interaction.
