Caption: Starburst galaxy NGC 1313. Composite image of the central parts of the starburst galaxy NGC 1313. This image was obtained by combining exposures taken through different broad (R, B, and z) and narrow band (H-alpha, OI, and OIII) filters. Many star formation regions can be seen, showing the very active state of this galaxy. A great number of supershell nebulae are visible along with nebulosities (green). Imaged with the FORS1 instrument on the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT), on the night of 16th December 2003.
