Radio Galaxy Zoo Talk

Nearby galaxy merger/overlap interesting

    Not related to the #doublelobe in the center of the field.

    zph 0.069±0.010 SDSS J163630.92+632056.0 looks very interesting:

    Overlap? or Merger?

    Curiously, the only reference NED gives is Verley+ (2007) "The AMIGA sample of isolated galaxies. IV. A catalogue of neighbours around isolated galaxies" 😮

    Oh, and I'm not sure why both sisifolibre and antikodon marked the radio source(s) as #artifact ...

    I think that @antikodon refers faint artefacts around a real radio source. I classify this field in my collection about all the subjects that have the tag "artefact" , and in my collection about subjets that I think that have artefacts and a real radio source, I described why make these collections in his description. Sorry for the inconvenience if I have been confusing.

    Ah, thanks sisifolibre! 😃

    I now understand much better, and agree that there are many just-below-threshold faint sources (and one just above) in this field, and that they (the faint sources) are almost all artifacts/artefacts.

    Very helpful.
