A QSO 2.4 arcsec from a dwarf galaxy - the rest of the story.


Abstract (from CDS):

D. Reimers and H.-J. Hagen report in 1998A&A...329L..25R that a QSO of z=.807 is a ``by chance projection" on the center of a galaxy of z=.009. A considerable amount of previously published evidence would lead us to expect an active, low redshift galaxy within about one degree of such a quasar. It is shown here that, in fact, there is a bright Seyfert galaxy of z=.008 only 36.9 arcmin distance. Moreover, it turns out that a total of five quasars, plus the dwarf galaxy, are accurately aligned along the minor axis of this Seyfert with the quasars in descending order of redshift, i.e., z=2.13, 1.97, .81, .69 and .35.
