NGC 7550 Galaxy Group (ARP 99)

NGC 7547, 7549, 7550 and 7558 are forming a close and partly interacting group of galaxies in the constellation of Pegasus in a distance of 220-240 million light-years.
The group is also known as ARP 99 and Hickson 93.

Tidal interactions from an ancient collision can be seen as Shells surrounding NGC 7550.
