Galaxy NGC 1512 is a barred spiral galaxy located some 30 million light years away toward the constellation Horologium. Galaxy NGC 1512 is bright enough to be seen with amateur telescopes. The galaxy is some 70,000 light years across, which is nearly as large as our own Milky Way galaxy. The core of the galaxy is remarkable for its "circumnuclear" starburst ring, which is an amazing circle of young star clusters that spans some 2,400 light years across.
