    Very strong RF source appears to have created a hexagonal pattern of artifacts around it. May be looking straight at a jet?

    Good idea - definitely possible. Stronger sources create more #artifact s. The hexagonal pattern comes from layout of the radio telescope

    Since the VLA (the radio telescope) looks like a big Y, artifacts have that same shape (mirrored and rotated).
