A Barred spiral galaxy: NGC 613

NGC 613 is a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor, 67 million light years away and 100,000 light years across. It contains about 200 billion stars, many of them solar systems like our own. The brilliant star in the upper left is a star in our own Milky Way galaxy that is therefore millions of times closer and just happens to be in our line of sight to NGC 613.

NGC 613 was discovered by William Herschel in 1798 and first photographed in 1912 revealing its spiral form. Radio telescopes show that its nucleus is a strong source of radio emission and contains a supermassive black hole around 50 million times the mass of our Sun.
