Description

NGC 1313 (also known as the Topsy Turvy Galaxy) is a barred spiral galaxy discovered by the Scottish astronomer James Dunlop on 27 September 1826.
It has a strikingly uneven shape and its axis of rotation is not exactly in its center. (WIKI)

The galaxy lies in a vast dust cloud (or IFN???)
