Wide-angle tail galaxies in ATLAS

Mao, Minnie Y; Sharp, Robert; Saikia, D J; Norris, Ray P; Johnston-Hollitt, M; Middelberg, E; Lovell, James E J


We present radio images of a sample of six wide-angle tail (WAT) radio sources, identified in the Australia Telescope Large Area Survey 1.4-GHz radio survey, and new spectroscopic redshifts for four of these sources. These WATs are in the redshift range of 0.1469-0.3762, and we find evidence of galaxy overdensities in the vicinity of four of the WATs from either spectroscopic or photometric redshifts. We also present follow-up spectroscopic observations of the area surrounding the largest WAT,...[Show more]
