Caption

Hand-coloured optical photograph of the unusual spiral galaxy NGC 3718, in the constellation of Ursa Major. NGC 3718 is classed as a peculiar spiral; a large dark dust swirl passes through the galaxy's centre, the galaxy's inner disc shows little structure and the outer structures look very different from the arms of a normal spiral galaxy.
