Starburst Galaxies as Recently Formed Companions


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.
