Description

NGC 1512 is a barred spiral galaxy approximately 38 million light-years away from Earth in the constellation Horologium. The galaxy displays a double ring structure, with one ring around the galactic nucleus and another further out in the main disk.

These ring structures are thought to be caused by NGC 1512's own asymmetries in a drawn-out process called secular evolution.
