Radio Galaxy Zoo Talk



    From the lowest radio source It looks as if it could be coming from the infrared signature above or below it. Though it is closer to the one below I am not sure on the actual distances from either infrared source.

    As you will see in the Comments (below the image, left), fellow citizen scientist Dolorous_Edd identified this as a #triple, and RGZ scientist HAndernach later confirmed it.

    In this case, it's also an #overedge ... at least part of the upper radio source extends beyond the top edge of the image. Triples are Double Lobe sources which also have radio emission from the host; they often - but by no means always! - are somewhat symmetric, with the host being more or less midway between the two lobes.

    You can see this more clearly in the FIRST image (click the link below the image); I've changed the center to coincide with the host, and resized it a bit, here:

    Hope this helps, and happy hunting! 😃
