Abstract: We present ultraviolet images of 27 z < 0.1 3CR radio galaxies imaged at 2200 Angstroms with STIS. We compare the UV morphologies with WFPC2 snapshot survey images. We have found dramatic, complex and extended ultraviolet emission from radio galaxies even at zero redshift. We find a diverse range of UV morphologies, some completely divergent from their visual morphology, which are reminiscent of the chaotic high-z radio galaxies structures seen in rest-frame UV including star formation, jets, and possible scattered AGN continuum. We propose that these are the same physical phenomena as at high redshift, but on a smaller scale.
