NGC 660 is located in the constellation Pisces about 20 mly away. It's described as a polar ring galaxy because it has a ring of debris orbiting the galactic disk. A possible collision with a smaller galaxy is the likely explanation for it's appearance. Around 40, ten minute exposures through LRGB filters were combined to create this image.
