  • We present Keck Low Resolution Imaging Spectrometer spectroscopy along with Near-Infrared Camera and Multiobject Spectrometer (NICMOS) F110W (~J) and F160W (~H) images of the galaxy HDF 4-473.0 in the Hubble Deep Field (HDF), with a detection of an emission line consistent with Lyα at a redshift of z=5.60. Attention to this object as a high-redshift galaxy was first drawn by Lanzetta, Yahil, & Fernandez-Soto and appeared in their initial list of galaxies with redshifts estimated from the Wide… CONTINUE READING
