Two objects circling a common centre of gravity???

    Highly speculative I know but are the top two objects #bent because they're orbiting a common centre of gravity???

    Do you mean objects in the infrared, or in the radio?

    Yes, the radio sources would be #bent. As they are bent in opposite directions suggests that this is a precessing jet. I would choose the IR source connected to the upper radio lobe as the host IR galaxy.

    The radio source in the bottom left is separate.
