Quasars near the line of sight towards Q 0302 − 003 and the transverse proximity effect ⋆

Abstract

We report the discovery of the faint (V ≃ 21.7) quasar QSO 03027−0010 at z = 2.808 in the vicinity of Q 0302−003, one of the few quasars observed with STIS to study intergalactic He  absorption. Together with another newly discovered QSO at z = 2.29, there are now 6 QSOs known near the line of sight towards Q 0302−003, of which 4 are located within the… (More)
