Discovery of a New Type of High Redshift Galaxy?

Francis, Paul; Woodgate, B. E.; Danks, A. C.


Most currently known high redshift (z>2) galaxies are either powerful radio sources, or compact blue star-forming galaxies (eg. Steidel et al. 1996, ApJ 462, L17). We have discovered a group of three galaxies at redshift 2.38 that fall into neither category: radio-quiet galaxies with spectacular line emission and extremely red continuum colours. All three galaxies were discovered through narrow-band Lyalpha imaging and have confirmed multi-line redshift identifications. These three galaxies...[Show more]
