SDSS J221830.16+001221.1 1237663479259332945 z spec=0.293
QSO AGN




from CFHTLS cutouts:

AGN could be a lens candidate for the 2 blue blobs across with arc or a false positive with trail satellites?   ??? ???

Do these two blue blobs be "voorwerp" clouds  (not lensed )?

The AGN is a strong radio-galaxy FIRST J221829.9+001220   or 4C-0.81

Looks like lensing around a SMBH/QSO to me. :o

you don't usually see a purple galaxy  :o

there appears to be a lot of ultraviolet emission but not a ton of x-ray- Hanny's one had a bit more. But the question is- is this a disturbed AGN, a voorwerp, or something else?
I like to find asteroids and galaxy mergers- but all galaxies are still fine to me.
