The galaxy is roughly 12 million light-years away, relatively close, located in the constellation Ursa Major. The radio emissions abruptly began within a few days of the object first appearing in May of 2009, and have been going ever since.

The object doesn’t match any celestial objects known to emit radio waves, such as a quasar or micro-quasar, and has an apparent super-luminal motion of over 4 times the speed of light relative to the galactic center.
