Radio Galaxy Zoo Talk

Star in front of a distant galaxy?

    Looks as if, in the center of the image, a closer object has it's contour blended with a larger galaxy or object behind it?

    This is pretty cool! 😃

    The host (galaxy) of the radio emission in the center is spectroscopic redshift (zsp) 0.166 SDSS J120432.94+035807.6:

    I can't see any blending or overlapping in the SDSS image. However, the radio emission seems to be that of a #bent #wat, a kind of #triple.

    Hope this helps, and happy hunting! 😃
