Atomic Gas in the Arp 295 Group
November 4, 2003
A composite image of the optical light (green and yellow), star forming regions (pinkish white), and cold atomic hydrogen gas (blue) in the classic bridge-tail system Arp 295. The atomic hydrogen observations, taken with the VLA in its C and D-array configurations, discovered 9 previously unknown group members (eight of which are seen in this image; the ninth lies outside the display area).
