bent doublelobe or hybrid?

  • WizardHowl by WizardHowl

    I'm not sure which of the several IR sources near the radio emission, if any, are the origin of this asymmetric signal, which looks like a doublelobe with one strongly bent lobe. Could it be a hybrid, or even two separate radio sources, one of which is a tailed source or bent and the other one lobe of an overedge source?

    There's one IR source directly on the line between the two peaks. That's my guess for the ID. I don't think this is hybrid. It looks like a regular double radio source except that the diffuse emission headed back to the core got deflected to the side. This is actually pretty common, although not many have popped up in RGZ yet.
