    This is a complex field! 😮

    I agree that SDSS J113358.49+242410.1 (NED zph 0.925) is likely a host, likely of much of the radio emission. However, the IR source in the center (sorry, I'm hopeless at finding WISE sources) may also be a radio source, making this part an #overlap. Also, it's possible the main host is not that NED QSO/blue star, or that there are other hosts.

    A contour overlay might help, but probably not much.

    No matter what, though, this is very likely an extreme example of #slipstrike.

    Hi Jean,
    So this is what a slipstream might look like! Had trouble classifying & think your right need more info & also hopeless in WISE!

    Yes. If you draw a line through the peaks of the radio sources, for each side/lobe, they do not intersect anywhere near the host. This is, however, a very unusual source.

    More often, #slipstrike sources also have lines which intersect far from the host, if you draw a line for each lobe through its "ridge".
