These features are commonly associated with many active galaxies.
In the active galaxies, black holes are seen as having masses far greater than a billion suns.
One mystery is why some active galaxies produce copious radio waves and others none.
With a redshift of 3.77, light from this active galaxy is estimated to have taken around 11.7 billion years to reach us.
The total list of active galaxies was cut down to those within a limited distance of Earth to avoid detection problems.
