NGC 2903 is a barred spiral galaxy only some 20 million light-years distant and about 80,000 light-years across. It shines in the northern spring constellation Leo, near the top of the lion's head. One of the brighter galaxies visible from the northern hemisphere, NGC 2903 is surprisingly missing from Charles Messier's catalog.
