Vertical jets

  • lbessi by lbessi

    what can be the vertical line through this object?
    Is it a lens aberration or it is real?

    Looks like an artifact to me. But I can't check it since there's no data in skyserver

    This is one of the new data set. It is a Hubble image. I'm not sure what it is, but it is not real.
    Relativistic jets are small features, they would be less than a pixel wide in these images. They can only be seen in 5 of the “nearer” galaxies.
