Description

Set against a background of hundreds of distant galaxies, NGC 660 has a very unusual appearance. Located 45 million light years away, it is a polar ring galaxy. This is a very rare galaxy type. Polar ring galaxies have a large population of stars, gas, and dust orbiting in rings heavily tilted from the plane of the galactic disk.
