ARG0000nwn overedge, doublelobe, giant?

  • ChrisMolloy by ChrisMolloy

    Here's ARG0000nwn, a possible #overedge, #doublelobe, #giant as per the classification comments left. There's also a cross reference for this emission, ARG0000nw2.

    The contour overlay image in this post was created from sources, and using methods, described in this RGZ Talk
    First contours are in red, NVSS cyan.

    There are two possible hosts for the emission. The first could be SDSS J105711.11+484002.9, which SDSS lists as a star, but could be a #QSO. It has a DR6 z_ph=2.366 +/-1, and an ALLWISE reference, ALLWISE J105711.12+484003.1.

    The second could be SDSS J105709.25+484040.9, which has a z_sp=0.276 +/-0.00005, and an ALLWISE reference, ALLWISE J105709.24+484041.1.

    However, there are a number of other ALLWISE sources within the vicinity of the middle of the lobes, which could also be the host of the emission.

    As always, comments, suggestions, welcome.

    The position of the star in the bottom lobe is unfortunate. I think it could be the blue QSO but not impossible for the nearer source to be the host.
