ARG0001ioi: host SDSS J104720.31+333337.5 has optical jet?

    zph 0.214 ± 0.0146 SDSS J104720.31+333337.5 is the apparent host. In SDSS it seems there's an apparent jet to the NE:

    Probably not real; what do you think?

    My suspicion is that we may be examining a group of galaxies here and the apparent extended optical emission may be individual sources but verification would require followup observations at better angular resolution.

    Although if your suspicion is proven then the difference in radio-optical jet angles will be interesting....
