New detailed radio data from the NRAO's Jansky Very Large Array has revealed that this 11,000 light-year long blue jet is actually another galaxy which is even farther away: 7 billion light-years.

But that galaxy has its own mysteries. The new detailed radio images show "that the gas in the galaxy's "outskirts," high above its spiral disk of stars, is not a smooth, halo-like envelope, but instead has smaller, discrete features. One of these features is arc-like, rising more than 11,000 light-years above the disk."
