We have discovered a previously unreported poor cluster of galaxies (RGZ-CL J0823.2+0333) through an unusual giant wide-angle tail radio galaxy found in the Radio Galaxy Zoo
project. We obtained a spectroscopic redshift of z = 0.0897 for the E0-type host galaxy, 2MASX J08231289+0333016, leading to Mr = −22.6 and a 1.4 GHz radio luminosity density
of L1.4 = 5.5 × 1024 W Hz−1. These radio and optical luminosities are typical for wide-angle
tailed radio galaxies near the borderline between...[Show more]
