We present two bright galaxy candidates at z ∼ 12–13 identified in our H-dropout Lyman break selection with 2.3 deg2 near-infrared deep imaging data. These galaxy candidates, selected after careful screening of foreground interlopers, have spectral energy distributions showing a sharp discontinuity around 1.7 μm, a flat continuum at 2–5 μm, and nondetections at <1.2 μm in the available photometric data sets, all of which are consistent with a z > 12 galaxy. An ALMA program targeting one of the… 

Two Remarkably Luminous Galaxy Candidates at z ≈ 10–12 Revealed by JWST

The first few 100 Myr at z > 10 mark the last major uncharted epoch in the history of the universe, where only a single galaxy (GN-z11 at z ≈ 11) is currently spectroscopically confirmed. Here we

Unveiling the Contribution of Population III Stars in Primeval Galaxies at Redshift ≥6

Detection of the first stars has remained elusive so far but their presence may soon be unveiled by upcoming JWST observations. Previous studies have not investigated the entire possible range of

An extreme blue nugget, UV-bright starburst at z = 3.613 with 90 per cent of Lyman continuum photon escape

We present the discovery and analysis of J1316+2614 at z = 3.6130, a UV-bright star-forming galaxy (MUV ≃ −24.7) with large escape of Lyman continuum (LyC) radiation. J1316+2614 is a young (≃10

Spectroscopy of four metal-poor galaxies beyond redshift ten

Finding and characterising the first galaxies that illuminated the early Universe at cosmic dawn is pivotal to understand the physical conditions and the processes that led to the formation of the

Interpreting ALMA non-detections of JWST super-early galaxies

Recent attempts to detect [O iii] 88$\, \mu$m emission from super-early (z > 10) galaxy candidates observed by JWST have been unsuccessful. Non-detections can be either due to wrong photometric

On the Probability of the Extremely Lensed z = 6.2 Earendel Source Being a Population III Star

The recent discovery of the extremely lensed Earendel object at z = 6.2 is remarkable in that it is likely a single star or stellar multiple, observed within the first billion years of cosmic
