ARG00016b1: host? radio morphology?

  • JeanTate by JeanTate

    ARG00016b1: I think the host may be zph 0.509 ± 0.033 SDSS J160727.74+394305.4. Whic may be an Eos.

    If so, what is the radio morphology?

    If not, what is the host (and radio morphology)?

    hi jean, what do you mean by Eos? my suspicion is that this subject contains a pair of hourglass object....

    Thanks Ivy.

    Neither radio source seems to me to be at all like an hourglass; individually they're more like corejets. If they are separate sources, then by a cosmic coincidence, neither has an IR or SDSS host (so it seems to me).

    "Eos": edge-on spiral (actually Eod would be more accurate - disk, rather than spiral - but that's very boring)

    Happy New Year! 😃

    Thanks @JeanTate for your clarification. Happy New Year to you too! 😃
