Single plume?

  • axrldn by axrldn

    Hi, any idea how this object should be classified? As a #singleplume or is it something else? Alex

    I would mark it as all the radio emission being associated with the bright IR source that overlaps with the top part of the bottom plume. It looks like it might be an hourglass with the top half of the plume much fainter or too diffuse to show up clearly, or it could be a rare hybrid. Certainly worth asking!

    The SDSS shows a possible faint optical counterpart to the IR source, SDSS J151734.66+085445.0 which has photometric redshift of about 0.65 to 0.7 (+/- ~0.25) but not much information about it, or anything else nearby that might instead be the origin.

    I think it's a #triple, with one side filled in with jet emission, and the other (northern) side no jet visible.
