  • In a survey of quasar candidates selected by matching the Faint Images of the Radio Sky at Twenty cm (FIRST) and Two Micron All-Sky Survey catalogs, we have found two extraordinarily red quasars. FIRST J013435.7-093102 is a 1 Jy source at z = 2.216 and has B-K 10, while FIRST J073820.1+275045 is a 2.5 mJy source at z = 1.985 with B-K ≈ 8.4. FIRST J073820.1+275045 has strong absorption lines of Mg II and C IV in the rest frame of the quasar and is highly polarized in the rest-frame ultraviolet… CONTINUE READING
