The Hubble type of the double lobe galaxy NGC 5972
P. Veron, M.P. Veron
We found in the litterarure a single example of a spiral galaxy associated with
a classical extended double lobe radio source: NGC 5972 classified as an SO-a
by Lauberts (1982). We show that it is rather an E galaxy which may possibly
be the result of a merger event. It has an emission line spectrum typical
of a Seyfert 2 galaxy.
