The First Data is Coming In!
The observations for BUFFALO have started!
This image shows the first 4 visits of the first cluster (Abell 370) by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The mosaic image consists of HST's filters F105W, F125W, and F160W in the near-infrared.
BUFFALO extends the area surveyed by HST for 6 Frontier Field Clusters by about 4 times. This will enable us to study the outskirts of these galaxy clusters as well as to find more lensed galaxies in the background. These will open new doors for the exploration of galaxy formation in the early Universe.
