NGC 1532 is a large, edge-on spiral galaxy located approximately 50 million light-years away in Eridanus. Interaction with dwarf galaxy NGC 1531 above it is causing the distorted shape. At -32 degrees declination, this is another object that is very low in the northern hemisphere that I had the opportunity to capture from New Mexico.
