chaotic bhgroup

    It's tempting to label this as a #bhgroup candidate. The plumes are arranged asymmetrically, one is strongly #bent , and whilst the bright central IR source and the lower-right bright IR source seem clearly to be radio galaxies the other source(s) of the radio emission are not clear. The lower-left lobes seem like they share a common origin but the IR source in between them is not a good match. A most eventful field!

    Yes I would say this is a #bhgroup. The two radio contours at the lower left is probably one radio source, a #WAT. The two radio sources in centre are probably another. The radio source in the lower right is another. We would require redshifts to make sure that they are all connected.

    My guess is that the radio source in the lower right is separate from the other two radio sources.

    A very nice find!
