    Quite strange spherical form of triple (or doublelobe)

    It looks like radio jets are beamed east from the galaxy, and not directly towards the observer. Any explanation?

    I wonder if we're seeing only a part of this jet. It looks a little like 3C175 to me. Check out this image of 3C175:
