    Is it just me or is there a very distinct hexagon type pattern to the radio image for this object?

    Yes there is a hexagon pattern. The radio galaxy is very bright and the radio telescope has a hard time dealing with this.

    This is very similar to the spikes from stars in optical and infrared images. The radio source is real, the hexagon is an #aretfact.
