NGC 5775: Spiral galaxy with known giant jet ?

  • zutopian by zutopian

    It has 243 Refs in NED, but I couldn't find out, if it is a known radio jet, which is associated with the spiral, a background radio source or something different .

    The radio emission here is not the result of a jet. The emission is a halo out to 10 kpc above and below the spiral galaxy. (http://articles.adsabs.harvard.edu//full/1998A%26A...331..428D/0000428.000.html). There is also evidence of this galaxy interacting with a nearby galaxy and the radio emission extends over to that galaxy too.
