This picture shows you a small-scaled galaxy group at the tip of Leo's forefoot. A bright one in center has a number of NGC2911, another galaxy in upper left-hand side is NGC2919, and the smallest one just southeast of NGC2911 is NGC2914. NGC2911 looks like an elliptical galaxy but it has been classified in peculiar lenticular galaxy.
