Association of galaxies at disparate redshifts. There are some amazing cases of objects with wildly different redshifts but showing the appearance of direct interaction. No two seem to be of the same kind, and there are more or less plausible ad hoc conventional interpretations depending on how much of a statistical fluke one is willing to believe out of a given number of galaxies. Some of the most notorious cases are Stephan's Quintet, NGC 4319/Mkn 205, and NGC 7603. Stephan's Quintet is a compact group (probably the first to be found) in which four of the members have redshifts cz = 5700 - 6700 km/s, while the remaining member NGC 7320 has redshift only 800 km/s, close to that of the bright spiral NGC 7331 only abour 1/2° away. NGC 7320 is of larger angular size than the other members, but only less than a factor 2. NGC 7320 shows a low-surface-brightness tail approximately opposite the other group members. Detection of even fainter structure is thwarted by especially strong galactic "cirrus" reflection in this area.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
