The host galaxy is in a moderately rich cluster (McCarthy, Spinrad & van Breugel 1995). The HST image (de Koff et al 1996) suggests a dust lane, and there are tails to the NE and SW (all within the central 3 arcsec). McCarthy et al. found a region of emission-line gas, unassociated with any galaxy, about 40 arcsec (130 kpc) from the nucleus, on the southern edge of the SE lobe. This is a candidate case of jet-induced star formation.

Although not very clear with our logarithmic LUT, there is a weak but compact hotspot at the tip of the NW lobe.
