I review selected current observations of distant galaxies and our interpretation of the fragile (and occasionally contradictory) data. Galaxies at the ``contemporary limit'' of technology and redshift (z~6) are difficult to locate in the first place. Moreover, the large redshift may push some critical confirming and/or interpretative analysis toward unfamiliar IR wavelengths. I will concentrate on observational means and results to explore the early evolution of galaxies. We also note the… Expand

Search Techniques for Distant Galaxies
How and when do galaxies form? Studies of the microwave background radiation reveal that the universe is spectacularly homogenous at redshift z ≈ 1000. Observations of the local universe reveal thatExpand
A New Catalog of Photometric Redshifts in the Hubble Deep Field
Using the newly available infrared images of the Hubble Deep Field in the J, H, and K bands and an optimal photometric method, we have refined a technique to estimate the redshifts of 1067 galaxies.Expand
The Rest-Frame Optical Spectra of Lyman Break Galaxies: Star Formation, Extinction, Abundances, and Kinematics*
We present the first results of a spectroscopic survey of Lyman break galaxies (LBGs) in the near-infrared aimed at detecting the emission lines of [O II], [O III], and Hβ from the H II regions ofExpand
Lyman Break Galaxies at z>4 and the Evolution of the UV Luminosity Density at High Redshift
We present initial results of a survey for star-forming galaxies in the redshift range 3.8 z 4.5. This sample consists of a photometric catalog of 244 galaxies culled from a total solid angle of 0.23Expand
A Radio Galaxy at z=5.19
We report the discovery of the most distant known AGN, the radio galaxy TN J0924-2201 at z = 5.19. The radio source was selected from a new sample of ultra-steep spectrum (USS) sources, has anExpand
The Star formation history of field galaxies
We develop a method for interpreting faint galaxy data which focuses on the integrated light radiated from the galaxy population as a whole. The emission history of the universe at ultraviolet,Expand
Spectral evidence for widespread galaxy outflows at z > 4
We present discovery spectra of a sample of eight lensed galaxies at high redshift, 3.7 < z < 5.2, selected by their red colors in the fields of four massive clusters: A1689, A2219, A2390, and ACExpand
Probing the faint end of the Galaxy luminosity function at z=3 with Ly-alpha emission
We present spectroscopic observations obtained with the ESO Very Large Telecope (VLT) of seven candidate Ly-alpha emitting galaxies in the field of the radio quiet Q1205-30 at z=3.04 previouslyExpand
The Dust Content and Opacity of Actively Star-Forming Galaxies
We present far-infrared (FIR) photometry at 150 and 205 km of eight low-redshift starburst galaxies obtained with the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) ISOPHOT. Five of the eight galaxies are detectedExpand
The Most Distant Structure of Galaxies Known: A Protocluster at z = 4.1*
Imaging and spectroscopy with the Very Large Telescope have revealed 20 Ly? emitters within a projected distance of 1.3 Mpc and 600 km s-1 of the luminous radio galaxy TN J1338-1942 at z = 4.1.Expand
