Whats going on here?
« on: August 31, 2009, 01:39:19 pm »
I'm confused with this one, i thought at first a star forming region or a star, but the z for the galaxy and the blob are the same ( 0.008 ) and the spectra doesnt look right for a star forming region ??? Its looks to be active?

Ooh, that is cool! It is indeed an active nucleus (type 1 Seyfert, SDSS spectral type listed as QSO), but apparently in a galaxy which has been so thoroughly shredded by interaction that we don't see much left of it but the nucleus. The big disk galaxy is Markarian 177. As best I can tell from NED, Mkn 177 is itself a starburst galaxy, which fits with the SDSS spectrum.

Hmm - one might look for gas in Mkn 177 ionized by that AGN if it's really passing through the disk.

I see a shell with its lonely inhabitant pleasantly sleeping inside.  YAWN, now I'm sleepy! ;D

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days

Copy from another topic:

587733081347063839 z=0.0078 , SDSS J113323.47+550420.6  SpecObjID = 285923593806675968
in front of
QSO 587733081347063838 z=0.0085 , SDSS J113323.97+550415.8 SpecObjID = 285642003167838208



awesome..


One of the closest QSO in SDSS 1237658802571968533
background of 1237658802571968534


see also Mrk 1310 -- Seyfert 1 Galaxy (QSO spectrum z=0.01948) 1237650760243216505

A new paper on this precise object has been submitted to MNRAS. They suggest that it's in fact a luminous blue variable (LBV) star erupting over decades, followed by a supernova explosion in 2001. http://arxiv.org/pdf/1401.6798v1.pdf

Well, according to the new paper it is unclear, what it really is. There are going to be observations in the future.

PS: Here is the GZ Talk discussion related to the new paper.: http://talk.galaxyzoo.org/#/boards/BGZ0000001/discussions/DGZ0000ila?page=1&comment_id=52e8fb5df11e0479b500017b
