Extract

Numerous instances of intergalactic star forming regions have been recently reported (see Duc et al. in this proceedings book). They are fueled by gaseous material expelled from parent galaxies. One spectacular example is the HI ring-like structure around the interacting system NGC 5291 (Malphrus et al. 1997) which hosts numerous HII regions (Duc & Mirabel 1998). In order to study how star formation proceeds in this specific environment, we have combined ultraviolet (Galex), Hα, 8 μm (Spitzer) and HI (VLA B-array) images of this system.
