NGC 5850 and Friends

NGC 5850 (right) is a disrupted, barred spiral in the constellation Virgo. Its peculiar bar and ring morphology is thought to be the result of a high-speed encounter with the massive elliptical, NGC 5846 (middle). NGC 5846 is the largest and brightest member of a small galaxy group, including, from left to right, NGC 5839, NGC 5845, NGC 5846A, NGC 5846B and NGC 5850 itself.
