NGC 1410 is a peculiar lenticular galaxy[4] in the constellation Taurus. It was discovered on Jan 17, 1855 by English astronomer R. J. Mitchell.[6] NGC 1410 is located in close proximity to the larger lenticular galaxy NGC 1409, and the two are strongly interacting. Their respective nuclei have a separation of just 23 kly, and they share a diffuse stellar envelope with a radius extending out to 49 kly.[7]

This is classified as a type II Seyfert galaxy and it appears to be undergoing star formation, unlike its neighbor NGC 1409. It shows signs of being dynamically perturbed, particularly along the western side.[4] There is a conspicuous pipeline of dust and gas being funneled from NGC 1410 to NGC 1409. This lane has a typical width of 330 ly with an estimated mass of 3×108 M and is transferring mass at the estimated rate of 1.1–1.4 M yr–1.[7]
