## Monster in the Dark: The Ultraluminous GRB 080607 and Its Dusty Environment

We present early-time optical through infrared photometry of the bright Swift gamma-ray burst (GRB) 080607, starting only 6 s following the initial trigger in the rest frame. Complemented by our previously published spectroscopy, this high-quality …

## A Mature Dusty Star-forming Galaxy Hosting GRB 080607 at z = 3.036

We report the discovery of the host galaxy of Swift dark burst GRB 080607 at z $_GRB$ = 3.036. GRB 080607 is a unique case of a highly extinguished (A$_V$ ≈ 3 mag) afterglow that was yet sufficiently bright for high-quality absorption-line …
