diffuse emission

  • WizardHowl by WizardHowl

    The central radio emission here has a well-defined IR counterpart but does not seem to have plumes or jets. Could this be relic emission, or a jet plume angled exactly towards our line of sight, or something else? #messy ?

    Most likely is that it is just a #compact source, one that is physically small, for which you'd need much higher resolution observations to see the jets.
