Extended Groth Strip

(EGS)
(region of sky searched for distant galaxies)

The Extended Groth Strip (EGS) is a name given to a Survey Field that was selected for searches for high-Redshift galaxies. An Hubble Space Telescope-based Astronomical Survey followed, and AEGIS has continued the activity. The region is a rectangular, but with edges not aligned with coordinates (angled more-or-less 45 degrees). Some discoveries are commonly cited with names using the prefix EGS. Cited:

The Extended Groth Strip is an extended version of the Groth Strip, which was used for the Groth Strip Survey (GSS) and some other surveys, and was a 140 square arcminute region around J141700+523000.
