  • We present the detection of 34 Lyα emission-line galaxy candidates in a 80 × 80 × 60 comoving Mpc region surrounding the known z = 2.38 galaxy cluster J2143-4423. The space density of Lyα emitters is comparable to that found by Steidel et al. when targeting a cluster at redshift 3.09, which is a factor of 5.8 ± 2.5 greater than that found by field samples at similar redshifts. The distribution of these galaxy candidates contains several 5-10 Mpc scale voids. We compare our observations with… CONTINUE READING
