large quasar group
(structure consisting of a collection of quasars)
The term large quasar group (LQG) is pretty-much
self-descriptive: grouped quasars. They are
seen at high redshift (z) as are quasars.
Their expanse is large, hundreds of megaparsecs across.
They are considered
large scale structures and a possible precursor to large scale structures
found in the recent (smaller z) universe.
