Strong Radio


    There seems to be some strong radio sources but very little if anything at all showing up in the infrared.

    This is, I think, a #bent #triple, with the host being a particularly strong radio source, and the two lobes of different intensities. That the IR source - the host - is so weak suggests that this is a very long way away. If it were a bit further, or the IR too weak to be detected, it'd be an #ifrs (I've forgotten what that stands for, sorry).

    Hope this helps, and happy hunting! 😃

    At first look I would have marked this one as two separate sources. The #double and then a single compact source.

    As you can see, some can be complicated to classify.

    #ifrs = infrared faint radio source
