What's with the IR image?
Not quite sure if I mark it correctly, but the IR image is way too bright...
by DocR scientist
I'm not sure what you marked, but this is almost certainly two different sources. The upper pair of components is centered on an IR source, so that's one ID, and there's a nice SDSS galaxy there. The component in the south is on top of another IR source, so it's a separate, compact source.
Oh, right, I forget our marks on IR sources do not appear in discussions.
I marked two IR sources, closest to the two radio contours but the IR image looks whiter than the other IR images I usually see, so I was wondering if I marked the correct IR sources (which as DocR explained, are two different sources)
Why was it so white?
