  • In Paper 1 of this series we identified an 80 co-moving Mpc filament of candidate Lyman-alpha emitting galaxies at redshift 2.38. In this paper we present spectroscopy of the 37 galaxy candidates. Our spectroscopy reached a surface brightness limit of 5.0E-17 erg/cm^2/s/arcsec^2. Of the 14 candidates down to this limit, 12 were confirmed to be Lyman-alpha emitting galaxies at the filament redshift. We also obtained spectral confirmation for six of the lower surface brightness candidates, all of… CONTINUE READING
