These are two images of the inner radio lobes, the lower one a "close up" of the upper one. Click on either picture for a larger version (which may take awhile!). The inner lobes extend about 5 kpc, end to end. There is no visible sign of a counter-jet, but the apparent flows seen in the halo suggests that it exists but is very faint. We do not yet know in detail how the flow connects from these inner lobes to the larger halo.
