  • We present late-time imaging and spectroscopic observations of the optical transient (OT) and host galaxy of GRB 970508. Imaging observations roughly 200 and 300 days after the burst provide unambiguous evidence for the flattening of the light curve. The spectroscopic observations reveal two persistent features that we identify with [O II] ?3727 and [Ne III] ?3869 at a redshift of z=0.835?the same redshift as the absorption system seen when the transient was bright. The OT was coincident with… CONTINUE READING
