NGC 2683 – The UFO Galaxy

This 10.6 magnitude galaxy in the constellation Lynx is seen nearly edge on, and shows lots of detail in its core, because of the abundant gas and dust in it.

It is receding from us at 410 km per second, so by the end of taking this picture, it was already 2,5 million kilometers further away from us than when I started.
