                 NGC 1313 is obviously a very active galaxy, showing many                  bluish star formation regions. Also a great number of supershell nebulae                  is visible. This is the reason why 15 million light-years distant galaxy                  NGC 1313 is classified as a nearby starburst galaxy. It is often described                  as a galaxy in transition between the Magellanic-type galaxies and normal                  disk galaxies such as M33.                  The bright spiral galaxy in the left bottom corner of the above image is                  NGC 1313A. With a distance of 240 Mio light-years, this galaxy                  is 16 times farther away than NGC 1313.
