Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies (BoRG)

The Brightest of Reionizing Galaxies (BoRG) observations were first obtained in HST Cycle 17 in program GO 11700 (PI: Michele Trenti) and continued in Cycle 19 with program GO 12572 (PI: Michele Trenti). BoRG is an ongoing pure-parallel program that obtains WFC3 imaging in four filters (F606W, F098M, F125W, F160W) on random sightlines at high Galactic latitudes (|b| > 30 degrees). BoRG also assimilates data from the similar Hubble Infrared Pure Parallel Imaging Extragalactic Survey (HIPPIES) pure-parallel program (GO 11702; PI: Yan) as well as the coordinated parallel observations acquired as part of the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) GTO program (GO 11519, 11520, 11524, 11528, 11530, 11533, 11534, 11541, 12024, and 12025). The filter selection of the HIPPIES program and the earlier part of the COS GTO program differ from BoRG in that those datasets used the F600LP filter instead of F606W.

The data are available through the browser.

The files are also available via anonymous ftp at:
archive.stsci.edu
cd /pub/hlsp/borg.
