Description

NGC 1313 is a isolated galaxy in Reticulum that has its disorganized shape from star burst activity and not by colliding with a neighbor, as there are no close by galaxies.  It is further atypical in its assyetrical arms and the fact that the center of rotation is not the middle of the central bar.
