We present neutral hydrogen, ultraviolet, optical, and near-infrared imaging, and optical spectroscopy, of Minkowski's Object (MO), a star-forming peculiar galaxy near NGC 541. The observations strengthen evidence that star formation in MO was triggered by the radio jet from NGC 541. Key new results are the discovery of a 4.9 × 108 MOdot; double H I cloud straddling the radio jet downstream fromMO, where the jet changes direction and decollimates; strong detections of MO, also showing double...[Show more]
