Centaurus A (NGC 5128) is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus 13 million lightyears away. NGC 5128 is one of the closest radio galaxies to Earth and is also the fifth-brightest in the sky, making it an ideal amateur astronomy target.
The galaxy is only visible from below very low northern latitudes but is best seen or imaged from the southern hemisphere.
