Arp 80, with major members NGC 2633 and NGC 2634, is located in northern Camelopardalis with a distance of about 100 million light-years. The entire field is permeated by the Integrated Flux Nebula (IFN), which is well visible in a structure of two definite wisps. At the top, is the spiral galaxy NGC 2633. Below is the shell galaxy NGC 2634 and nearby 2634A. The shells around NGC 2634 are a very recent discovery, made in 2000. Although these three galaxies are at similar distances and in the same general direction, they are not interacting with each other.
