Abstract: We use deep GALEX images in UV to define the first large sample of 420 Lyman Break Galaxies at z ~ 1. Deep Spitzer IRAC and MIPS provide the first detection of a large sample of Lyman Break Galaxies in the mid- to far-infrared range. We are therefore able to study and compare the UV and TIR emission of Lyman Break Galaxies. We find that about 15 % of the LBG sample are strong emitters at 24 μm (Red LBGs). Most of them are Luminous IR Galaxies (LIRGs) while the rest are undetected at the 83μJy level of MIPS GTO image. The latter objects have a Spectral Energy Distribution similar to high redshift Lyman Break Galaxies.
