We report early results on galaxies at z ∼ 6, selected from Hubble Space Telescope imaging for the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey. Spectroscopy of one object with the Advanced Camera for Surveys grism and from the Keck and VLT observatories a shows a strong continuum break and asymmetric line emission, identified as Lyα at z = 5.83. We detect only five spatially extended, z ∼ 6 candidates with signal–to–noise ratios > 10, two of which have spectroscopic confirmation. This is many fewer… CONTINUE READING
