Using Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and Spitzer IRAC imaging, we report the discovery of a very bright strongly lensed Lyman break galaxy (LBG) candidate at -->z ~ 7.6 in the field of the massive galaxy cluster Abell 1689 ( -->z = 0.18). The galaxy candidate, which we refer to as A1689-zD1, shows a strong -->z850 − J110 break of at least 2.2 mag and is completely undetected ( J110 − H160 and -->H160 − [ 4.5 μ m ] colors, are exactly the properties of an -->z ~ 7.6 LBG, and can only be reasonably… Expand
