Direct photography and spectra of the companion galaxy NGC 2777 show that it is composed predominantly of young stars and that it exhibits outflow of hot gaseous material. A hydrogen filament leads back to a larger nearby galaxy. it is proposed that this smaller, currently star forming companion, originated recently from material ejected from the larger galaxy.
