Extended Groth Strip

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

The Extended Groth Strip is a name given to a portion of the sky that was selected for searches for high-Redshift (z) galaxies. An Hubble Space Telescope (HST)-based Astronomical Survey followed, and AEGIS has continued the activity. Some discoveries are commonly cited with names using the prefix EGS.
