Abstract

NGC6119 and NGC6120 have been listed in Kiso catalog (Takase et al., 1987) as Sc and Irr galaxies. They have been selected by their clumpy features in order to investigate their nature and star formation history using slit spectroscopy. They have similar systemic velocities (respectively 9215 and 9200 km ·s-1) and seem to be members of a low gravitational interacting system of 4 galaxies (with MCG-6-36-30 and NGC6122).
