Extract

Superluminal motions were first seen in 3C 120 between 1972.5 and 1974.4 (Seielstad et al. 1979 and references therein). Between 1975 and 1980, the source was monitored along with 3C 273 and 3C 345 by the Caltech group. One reasonably clear episode of expansion was seen in 1979 (Walker et al. 1982) but, for most of the time, the source evolution was so rapid that it was difficult to relate the structures seen at successive epochs.
