Abstract: Very deep neutral hydrogen (HI) observations of the edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 3079 with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) are presented. The galaxy has been studied extensively in different wavelengths and is known for its several unique and complex features. However, the new data still revealed several new features and shows that the galaxy is even more complicated and interesting than previously thought. In the new data, a large stream of gas encircling the entire galaxy was discovered, while the data also show, for the first time, that not only hot gas is blown into space by the starburst/AGN, but also large amounts of cold gas, despite the high energies involved in the outflow.
