Abstract

Spectra taken with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph allow accurate location and extraction of the nuclear spectrum of NGC 4151, with minimal contamination by extended line emission and circum-nuclear starlight. Spectra since 1997 show that the P Cygni Balmer and He I absorption seen previously in low nuclear states is present in higher states, with outflow velocity that changes with the nuclear flux. The phenomenon is discussed in terms of some of the absorbers seen in the UV resonance lines, and in terms of outflows from the central source and surrounding torus.
