One-line redshifts and searches for high-redshift Ly alpha emission

Abstract:

We report the serendipitous discovery of two objects close in projection with fairly strong emission lines at long wavelength (λ ∼ 9190 Å). One (A) seems not to be hosted by any galaxy brighter than V555 = 27.5, or I814 = 26.7 (Vega-based 3 σ limits in 1″.0 diameter apertures), while the other line is associated with a faint (I814 ≃ 24.4) red galaxy (B) offset by 2″.7 and 7 Å spectrally. Both lines are broad (FWHM ≈ 700 km s-1), are extended spatially, and have high equivalent widths [Wobsλ(A...
