The host dominates a group of about 12 galaxies, and may have slightly extended emission lines (Baum et al. 1988, Smith & Heckman 1989). The group is much smaller than the radio source.

High-resolution images are given by Leahy et al. (1997), which emphasises the "V" shaped structure of the northern hotspot; but in fact their images reveal very little fine-scale structure.
