About this Image

6 cm VLA image of the interacting twin jet source associated with the central radio galaxy in Abell 400. The two red dots (bottom center of image) each are associated with one of the twin nuclei of the central galaxy in cluster of galaxies Abell 400. The jets are bent, possibly by the motion of hot gas in the cluster past the nuclei. On the right side of the image the two jets appear to interact and possibly are wrapped around one another.
