We present Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the composite star-forming/Seyfert galaxy IRAS20051-1117. The X-ray imaging and spectral properties reveal the presence of an active nucleus. The Chandra image shows a strong nuclear point source (L(2 − 10keV) ∼ 4 × 10 42 erg s −1). The nuclear X-ray source coincides with a bright, also un-resolved, UV… CONTINUE READING
