The Jets in Radio Galaxy B1308–441

  • Paul A. Jones (a1)

Abstract

The giant radio galaxy B1308–441 has prominent two-sided jets, typical of Fanaroff–Riley class I radio galaxies, but there is an unusual bright spot in the SE jet 2 arcmin from the core that gives a marked asymmetry to the source. Observations at 1·37 and 2·37 GHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array show that the bright spot has a flattened spectrum and high polarisation, and changes the direction of the SE jet. There is a diffuse optical object close to the bright spot which may be related to a shock in the jet.
