We report new radio imaging of the large-scale radio structure of M87 with the VLA at 90 cm. These new images show the complex structure of the radio emission more clearly than previous attempts, some of which date back to the 1940s. The images suggest that the outward flow from the M87 nucleus extends well beyond the 2 kpc jet. Two "bubbles" of synchrotron emission appear to be inflated by this flow. A simple model of the emission, combined with our knowledge of the inner jet, suggest that the… 

Observations of M87 and Hydra A at 90 GHz

This paper presents new observations of the AGNs M87 and Hydra A at 90 GHz made with the MUSTANG bolometer array on the Green Bank Telescope at 8.5 ′′ resolution. A spectral analysis is performed

M 87 at metre wavelengths: the LOFAR picture

Context. M87 is a giant elliptical galaxy located in the centre of the Virgo cluster, which harbours a supermassive black hole of mass 6.4×109 M, whose activity is responsible for the extended (80

Chandra Imaging of the X-Ray Core of the Virgo Cluster

We report subarcsecond X-ray imaging spectroscopy of M87 and the core of the Virgo Cluster with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. The X-ray morphology shows structure on arcsecond (~100 pc) to 10' (~50

Hot and cold bubbles in M87

The X-ray data obtained with XMM-Newton are used to investigate the complex structure of the gas in the atmosphere of the Virgo cluster around M87. We construct a simple model for the temperature and

The Gaseous Atmosphere of M87 seen with XMM-Newton

Known as the closest cooling-core hosting an active nucleus, M87 is among the best candidates for detailed studies of the mechanisms behind the heating versus cooling balance. The deepest XMM-Newton


We present deep radio images of the inner ∼50 kpc of Centaurus A, taken with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array at 90 cm. We focus on the Transition Regions between the inner galaxy—including the

Thermal and Nonthermal Infrared Emission from M87

We discuss images of M87 from 3.6 to 160 μm obtained with Spitzer. As found previously, there is an excess in the far-infrared over a simple power-law interpolation from the radio to the resolved


We present new, low-frequency images of the powerful FR I radio galaxy Hydra A (3C 218). Images were made with the Very Large Array at frequencies of 1415, 330, and 74 MHz, with resolutions on the

High-Frequency VLBI Imaging of the Jet Base of M87

VLBA and Global VLBI observations of M87 at 43 GHz, some new and some previously published, are used to study the structural evolution of the jet with a spatial resolution of under 100 Schwarzschild

Dynamics and high-energy emission of the flaring HST-1 knot in the M 87 jet

Stimulated by recent observations of a giant radio-to-X-ray synchrotron flare from Hubble Space Telescope (HST)-1, the innermost knot of the M 87 jet, as well as by the detection of a very high



X-rays from the radio halo of M87

The Einstein Observatory and the VLA were used to scan the radio halo of the galaxy M87 to detect the presence, if any, of inverse Compton X-ray (ICX) emissions. The scans revealed a coincidence of

High-Resolution, High Dynamic Range VLA Images of the M87 Jet at 2 Centimeters

New high-dynamic-range radio observations, made with the VLA in the A array at 2 cm with a resolution of 0.1 arcsec, are reported. The new maps show a complex pattern of filamentary and other

Filaments in the Radio Lobes of M87

A total intensity VLA image of the inner lobes of M87 at 6 cm is presented. The map has a resolution of 0.4 arcsec and a dynamic range of about 10,000. Several bright features - loops and filaments -

The radio to X-ray spectrum of the M87 jet and nucleus

Einstein Observatory high-resolution imager data are used in conjunction with recent radio and optical observations to examine the morphology of the M87 jet; IR and UV data from the literature are

Faraday rotation in the M87 radio/X-ray halo

Comparison of polarizatin maps at various wavelengths demonstrates the existence of a large Faraday rotation uniform over the radio core of M87. Much of this rotation must be external to the core,

The Complex Core of Abell 2199: The X-Ray and Radio Interaction

The cluster Abell 2199 is one of the prototypical "cooling flow" clusters. Its central cD galaxy is host to a steep spectrum radio source of the type associated with cooling cores. In this paper, we

The mass profile and gas content of M87

X-ray images and spectroscopic observations, in particular of the Fe L lines, are used to constrain the structure of the hot gas and gravitating matter around M87 with respect to allowable

The Dusty Emission Filaments of M87

Emission-line and continuum images show that the Hα+[N II] filaments in M87 have a double stranded or ribbon-like morphology and that they are dusty. Spectroscopy of the filaments shows smoothly

The matter content of the jet in M87: evidence for an electron—positronjet

Recent observations have allowed the geometry and kinematics of the M87 jet to be tightly constrained. We combine these constraints with historical Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) results

X-Ray and Radio Interactions in the Cores of Cooling Flow Clusters

We present high-resolution ROSAT X-ray and radio observations of three cooling flow clusters containing steep-spectrum radio sources at their cores. All three systems exhibit strong signs of
