Witnessing galaxy preprocessing in the local Universe : the case of a star - bursting group falling into Abell 1367 ⋆

Abstract

We present a multiwavelength analysis of a compact group of galaxies infalling at high speed into the dynamically young cluster Abell 1367. Peculiar morphologies and unusually high Hα emission are associated with two giant galaxies and at least ten dwarfs/extragalactic HII regions, making this group the region with the highest density of star formation… (More)
