Twelve Rotating Images of Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC1300

Twelve Rotating Images of Barred Spiral Galaxy NGC 1300

After using Google to find the image of this galaxy, I used software called Stella 4d (available at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php) to project it onto the twelve pentagonal faces of an icosidodecahedron, and then hid the triangular faces, as well as the vertices and edges — and then set the galaxies to rotate on the faces, as well as around the axis of the polyhedron.
