Probably not a #relic, rather an optically invisible host.
Yep, single source and one very faint SDSS counterpart.
Where do you see a lens in this image (radio or optical)?
Just a normal FRII I'd say
Could be a faint radio lobe, but I'd rather not tag with #nat
Compact core has two extensions towards SW, could be an extreme #NAT. SDSS J161202.17+282925.6 at z_ph~0.18
I'm inclined that we're seeing a two-component source here (the central one is slightly extended)
One compact, two slightly extended, I'd say we see two AGN here.
Wow, that's an extreme NAT!
Unusual indeed, and the IR source right in the middle, so it's unlikely to be two sources. Weird!
Well spotted! This is a really large beast!
Maybe a precessing jet? The jet ends seem to be pointed in differtent directions.
And XID probably SDSS J120204.64+081240.8
The extended emission outside the image must not necessarily be connected, I'd say.
Not sure about the host ID. Why not SDSS J170517.08+394018.9 (further to the south-west)? Both are equally offset from central radio comps
Indeed, FIRST shows multiple components in eastern lobe (out of this image). SDSS J133253.26+020045.6.
Which one - towards its upper right? I'd be skeptical about that, it might be a chance association.
What a #messy region. Don't know what's going on here. Several radio sources in a cluster?
Why weird? The NVSS simply shows the central 3 in a single blob, other NVSS comps are visible in FIRST image, too. This looks like a #triple
Agreed, looks like recurring activity.
Indeed, nice one!
Btw, the contours look like that because they are so dense (because the source is so strong).
This is a very strong radio source (0.65 Jy in FIRST), but there is almost no IR. I'd say this is a marvellous #ifrs !
I don't think that there is a spiral galaxy between the two very bright IR objects. Check out SDSS for clarification.
Nice radio, but certainly not a spiral galaxy. It's an elliptical - check out SDSS.
Agreed that it looks like a merging system.
I'd prefer not to call this #overedge since the central source is compact and does not extend beyond the image.
This is part of a large radio source, see http://bit.ly/1cbxcey #overedge
Looks like an large elliptical to me. Strong radio sources are commonly located in ellipticals. But large radio!
Probably not, rather an elliptical galaxy (IR) in front of a background #triple
A foreground galaxy. Since the radio is central I can imagine it belongs to the large object. See http://bit.ly/1ju9tvP for details
Oh yes! Nice one.
Very unlikely - the sky is rather big, though chance coincidences happen. It's simply a faint radio source. #doublelobe
It means that the radio sources have different brightnesses (think contour lines on a topographic map)
This simply means that radio thing was fainter than our lowest contour. It probably belongs to the central object.
Part of a very weird object, #overedge #doublelobe #messy
Checked this - it's a single lobe of a very large radio galaxy #overedge #doublelobe
Wow! This could be a young radio galaxy which is drilling its way out of its host. Fantastic!
The left object is a star, the central object is a galaxy. Check out http://tinyurl.com/otvlb8o for an image with different stretch!
My understanding of #overedge is that a particular source is too large, which isn't the case here. The right object will turn up again!
I'd say #doublelobe , with the IR object between the radio objects, half-way to the bottom-right corner.
Could also be a double (top two) plus a single source which happens to be in the same spot... But the alignment is intriguing. #triple ?
Yes, why not!
It's really hard to tell because the separation between the lobes is so large.
What a beauty!
We're only seeing half the source. It's two lobes, but the IR counterpart must be bright thing, not a dark one. #overedge
I'd call this a #triple - a core where the black hole sits and two jets in opposite directions.
yep, I agree
Is this the first #relic? It's extended and there is no IR?
ambiguous IR, #messy
The bright double-lobed thing in the centre is real, however! The smaller objects along the diagonal axis are an #artefact
Looks like a squid, doesn't it? #plumes, #twin
A "radio galaxy" is a galaxy dominated by its radio emission (unlike this). However, it's interesting nevertheless!
Also grav. lenses typically have diameters of ~1 arcsecond, but these images have of order 30 arcseconds or so.
This is a classical #doublelobe with a black hole where the IR is and two radio jets on either side.
Looks like an #ifrs - a radio galaxy where the IR is strongly obscured. This is a really nice one!
I wouldn't bet that any of the two nearby faint IR sources are associated with the radio.
Probably. It seems like a core (black hole) and two jets in opposite directions.
You're right, the double-lobed structure indicates two jets in opposite directions from a black hole. But there is no IR counterpart here.
Is this a case of recurring activity? The two blobs on either side and the symmetry are striking.
#messy, #overedge, many potential IR counterparts
A nice #triple
http://radiotalk.galaxyzoo.org/#/subjects/ARG0001m4w is very complex, I'd call it messy (which is a saying I don't know what's happening)
No, not really...
I'd be careful to judge this based on this image alone. There are artefacts which may add to the complexity of the source. #artefact
Yes, that's what I would do.
yep, good #ifrs candidate
I vote for #triple. The IR in the north might just be noise.
I'd call this a #triple
Either a) the radio emission has an offset wrt the IR (eg a knot in a jet), or b) there are 2 IR sources overlapping
agreed, #ifrs candidate
just a very faint source, I suppose
Probably the paywall? Take a look at Fig.1 in http://arxiv.org/pdf/1209.2196v2 and http://picpaste.com/f8.png (the one labelled S1081)

Are you serious? There is VERY little information in this image...
Nah, it's more like an #ifrs, relics are larger (shockwaves in intracluster medium)
Yes, it's a #triple
Yes, maybe it's an artefact.
I'd say the source is too strong for a pure artefact, plus it doesn't exactly line up and there is a hint of an IR counterpart
two radio jets #bent backwards
pretty sure this is a #doublelobe and that the IR counterpart is the bright one on the right edge of the left component.
beware the #artefact
Is this a lobe of a source outside the image? #overedge
I'd add #overedge because I think what we're seeing is a lot of #artefact around a source just outside the image.
Maybe we should call these a #triple ?
Yes, it is, with a #jet and #doublelobe
another #messy object with a long #jet
very unsure what's going on here. Maybe two radio sources, maybe one, maybe two overlapping IR sources, maybe not.
another #ifrs with #doublelobe
Yes - the central component and the #overedge one in the upper right are lobes of the same galaxy, probably the bright thing between them
Several knots in a #corejet structure
Is the left source an #IFRS candidate?
A #doublelobe, but the radio shape is a bit distorted by #artefacts
I'd say there is a very bright #star nearby.
What a #messy thing this is! I guess it's two radio sources, and the IR counterpart of the left one is actually two overlapping sources
Yes, definitely, and maybe #bent
correct, the bright thing in the bottom left corner is a star
yes, #doublelobe, there is only one IR counterpart
Radio and IR are compact, but offset. Maybe the IR is a blend of two sources? #messy
A #doublelobe? Or two separate sources?
radio extension is an #artifact
This sure looks interesting. Extended radio, ok, but also very extended IR. #messy
IR a combination of two sources, #messy
Nice one, maybe another wide-angle tail? #bent
Could also be a Wide-angle tail - a two-sided jet which gets bent backwards by the wind from a galaxy cluster.
