We report the discovery of a new optical synchrotron jet in the radio galaxy 3C 15. This brings to nine the number of known optical synchrotron jets in nearby radio galaxies. The jet is well resolved in both length and width and extends to a projected metric distance of D5 kpc from the galaxy nucleus. The host galaxy shows complex inner structure, including a dust lane and what appears to be two, or possibly three, emission Ðlaments or arms. On average the optical jet is bluer than the hostdoi:10.1086/305359 fatcat:f56erkai3bgcxnoxlzl7kytjaq
