The brightest extragalactic radio sources
Brightest extragalactic radio sources ( > 2 Jy) at 11 cm wavelength (2.7
GHz), taken from the catalog by Wall & Peacock (MNRAS 216, 173)
and plotted in Galactic coordinates. The size of each symbol is proportional
to the logarithm of the source's flux; otherwise Cygnus A's symbol would
obscure most of the map.
For the spectra of some of these objects, consult page 150 of the Handbook
of Astronomy and Astrophysics.
