A Group of Galaxies at z=2.38

Francis, Paul; Woodgate, Bruce; Warren, Steve; Møller, Palle; Lowenthal, James; Williams, Ted


We have discovered a compact group of ~ 10 large galaxies at redshift z = 2.38. Two of the galaxies are strong Lyman-α emitters; all are bright in the near IR. We hypothesise that the group represents a giant elliptical galaxy caught in the act of bottom-up formation.
