A relative small globular cluster possibly due to close encounters with the Milky Way Galaxy. It was possibly a former member of the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy having been stripped away by the Milky Way Galaxy.

Also of note is the galaxy UGC 7170 in the lower right. It is a super thin galaxy that lacks a central bulge, and the tips of the disks are slightly warped. Super thin galaxies are underdeveloped systems with minimal amounts of interstellar material in them.
