[6.17U] Extremely Red Objects and Very Red Objects: A Wide Field Survey Around the Hubble Deep Field

E. Fernandez (New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology), A. Barger (University of Hawaii)

We performed a deep, wide-field near-infrared survey of the Hubble Deep Field North region using the University of Hawaii's 2.2-meter telescope. We obtained complementary Suprime-Cam I-band observations of the same area using the Subaru 8.2-meter telescope. From the I-K colors of the galaxy sources, we were able to identify a sizeable population of Extremely Red Objects (EROs; I-K>4) and Very Red Objects (VROs; I-K>3.5). We report on the surface densities of these unusual populations and compare our results with those of other surveys.
