From a series of paintings called "Encyclopedia Galactica", created in collaboration with Carl Sagan, who helped Jon Lomberg write the captions appearing on each painting. This project evolved into the episode/chapter in COSMOS of the same name. This series envisions entries in a compendium of civilizations and objects in the universe. Carl Sagan owned some of the paintings in this series, as does Frank Drake and the Arecibo Observatory.
The caption reads:
BARRED SPIRAL TYPE SBb(rs)
VIEWED FROM ITS COMPANION GALAXY
From the Complete Catalogue of Extraterrestrial Objects
