Astronomy Scuence ~ galaxy NGC 660 is more than 20 million light years and lies in the Pisces constellation. This galaxy looks quite strange because this galaxy has a ring on the poles.


A rare galaxy type, polar ring galaxies have a substantial population of stars, gas, and dust orbiting in rings nearly perpendicular to the plane of the galactic disk.


The bizarre configuration could have been caused by the capture of material from another galaxy passing. Wide discs and rings of galaxy NGC 660 covers an area of about 40,000 light-years away.
