Using data from the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), a radio telescope that operates at frequencies between 10 and 240 MHz and consists of 52 stations spread throughout Europe, astronomers have observed the radio galaxy 4C 43.15, the quasar 3C 293 and the supergiant elliptical galaxy Hercules A as well as gravitational lenses MG 0751+2716 and CLASS B1600+434.

LOFAR (Low Frequency Array)

LOFAR is the Low Frequency Array, the world’s largest radio telescope at low frequencies – and will remain so even after the construction of the Square Kilometre Array.

LOFAR uses an array of simple omni-directional antennae spread out across Europe to undertake an all-sky survey of 25% of the northern hemisphere, with data for the last few years.
