Aims. We present the first detection of diffuse dust in the intra-cluster medium of the Virgo cluster out to ∼0.4 virial radii, and study the radial variation of its properties on a radial scale of the virial radius. Methods. Analysing near-UV – i colours for a sample of ∼12 000 background galaxies with redshifts 0.02 <  z <  0.8, we find significant colour reddening and relate it to variation in E(B − V) values. Results. The E(B − V) mean profile shows a dust component characterised by an… 
The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS). VII. Brightest cluster galaxie UV upturn and the FUV-NUV color up to redshift 0.35
CONTEXT:At low redshift, early-type galaxies often exhibit a rising flux with decreasing wavelength in the 1000-2500 \AA{} range, called "UV upturn". The origin of this phenomenon is debated, and its
The properties of the Malin 1 galaxy giant disk - A panchromatic view from the NGVS and GUViCS surveys
Context. Low surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs) represent a significant percentage of local galaxies but their formation and evolution remain elusive. They may hold crucial information for our
A Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE)
NGC 4330 is one of the Virgo galaxies whose UV emission distributions show a tail structure. An associated tail structure is also observed in the HI and Hα emission distributions. Previous dynamical
Components of the diffuse ultraviolet radiation at high latitudes
We have used data from the Galaxy Evolution Explorer to study the different components of the diffuse ultraviolet background in the region between the Galactic latitudes 70°–80°. We find an offset
A Mysterious Ring in Dark Space?
We report the discovery of a low-surface-brightness (27.42 mag arcsec−2 in g band) nebula, which has a ring-like shape in the Beijing–Arizona Sky Survey (BASS). Positive detections have been found in
A Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE)
Aims. We measure far-infrared (FIR) emission from tails of stripped dust following the ionised and atomic gas components in galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping. We study the dust-to-gas
Measuring the total infrared light from galaxy clusters at z = 0.5–1.6: connecting stellar populations to dusty star formation
Massive galaxy clusters undergo strong evolution from z~1.6 to z~0.5, with overdense environments at high-z characterized by abundant dust-obscured star formation and stellar mass growth which
Probing interstellar turbulence in cirrus with deep optical imaging: no sign of energy dissipation at 0.01 pc scale
Diffuse Galactic light has been observed in the optical since the 1930s. We propose that, when observed in the optical with deep imaging surveys, it can be used as a tracer of the turbulent cascade
Galactic cirri in deep optical imaging
The ubiquitous presence of Galactic cirri in deep optical images represents a major obstacle to study the low surface brightness features of extragalactic sources. To address this issue, we have
Ram pressure stripping in high-density environments
Galaxies living in rich environments are suffering different perturbations able to drastically affect their evolution. Among these, ram pressure stripping, i.e. the pressure exerted by the hot and


The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS). IV: The role of the cluster environment on galaxy evolution
We study the role of the environment on galaxy evolution using a sample of 868 galaxies in the Virgo cluster and in its surrounding regions that are selected from the GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster
The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS) - III. The ultraviolet source catalogs
In this paper we introduce the deepest and most extensive ultraviolet extragalactic source catalogs of the Virgo Cluster area to date. Archival and targeted GALEX imaging is compiled and combined to
The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS) I. The UV luminosity function of the central 12 sq. deg
The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS) is a complete blind survey of the Virgo cluster covering similar to 40 sq. deg in the far UV (FUV, lambda(eff) = 1539 angstrom, Delta lambda = 442
The GALEX Ultraviolet Virgo Cluster Survey (GUViCS) - II. Constraints on star formation in ram-pressure stripped gas
Context. Several galaxies in the Virgo cluster are known to have large H i gas tails related to a recent ram-pressure stripping event. The Virgo cluster has been extensively observed at 1539 A in the
