NGC 4013 is a relatively small edge-on galaxy in the constellation of Virgo. The structure of this galaxy is very similar to NGC 891- especially the very fine sprays of dust lanes that rise perpendicular to the disk. The actual core of the galaxy is hidden by the central obscuring dust lane. The superimposed (foreground) star is in our own galaxy and just happens to look like an offset core. This galaxy is estimated to be 36 million light years away and it has had one recorded supernova in the past (1989). Check out the WIYN image to see a really great picture of this field. This image was taken as part of Advanced Observing Program (AOP) program at Kitt Peak Visitor Center during 2014.
