The Variable Compact Galaxy Zw 0039.5 + 4003


The optically variable compact galaxy Zw 0039.5 + 4003 has broad emission lines similar to those seen in Seyfert and N-type galaxies. The continuous spectrum shows no evidence of any stellar contribution and is probably largely nonthermal. The object has a redshift z = 0.1026 and an absolute visual magnitude of -21.6.
