This area contains a large H I cloud as well as filaments of ionized gas and associated blue knots, several of which exist along the northeastern edge of the radio-emitting zones. We observed the filaments and blue knots with the Hubble Space Telescope using WFPC2, and the ionized gas from the ground. Our sensitive, high angular resolution WFPC2 images reveal the presence of...[Show more]
