The increasing availability of high quality spectra of QSO absorption line systems at resolutions of only a few km s is expected to facilitate the translation of the kinematics of components comprising the lines into the spatial distribution of gas around an absorbing galaxy. In this Letter, we present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) spectra of Q1219+047, a QSO whose sightline passes 21 h kpc from the center of M61, through the outer regions of an extended H I disk. We detect complex Mg II… CONTINUE READING
