NGC 7319 is a galaxy in Pegasus, member of Stephan’s Quintet. Near the nucleus of NGC 7319 a quasar shines brightly. Quasars are generally described as being super luminous galaxies formed during the early universe, but the reason this quasar is so puzzling is that there is very little absorption of its light due to the effect of the gas and dust of NGC 7319. Perhaps, as some astronomers suggest, some quasars are actually the stripped cores of devoured galaxies that have been subsequently spit out by the surviving galaxy such as NGC 7319.
Many other galaxies seem to have a high number of detected quasars near them. This could be an observational bias or perhaps in this case the light of the quasar just happens to shine through a fortuitous window of NGC 7319.
