ARP Max-Planck-Institut fur Astrophysik, Karl-Schwarzschild-Strasse 1, 85740 Garching, Germany Received 1997 July 28; accepted 1998 January 30 ABSTRACT We report redshift measurements of five X-ray-emitting blue stellar objects located less than 12' from the X-ray Seyfert galaxy NGC 3516. We find these quasars to be distributed along the minor axis of the galaxy and to show a very good correlation between their redshift and their angular distance from NGC 3516. Moreover, the redshifts of these five quasars are 0.33, 0.69, 0.93, 1.40, and 2.10, which are very near the peaks of the redshift periodicity distribution (i.e., z = 0.3, 0.6, 0.96, 1.41, and 1.96). All these observed properties strikingly confirm, around this single example of a Seyfert, the composite picture derived from previous physical associations of quasars with low-redshift active galaxies.
