In three-dimensional comoving coordinates we show 30,000 galaxies from the CSI redshift catalog down to logM=10.3 dex. Blue spheres are those selected to be star-forming by their (U-V) and (V-J) colors, and yellow spheres are those selected to be quiescent by the same method (see,e.g., Williams et al 2009, Kelson et al 2014). The volume is also filled by the average local star-formation rate density using red voxels of variable opacity (defined by the SFRD) of dimension 0.025 in redshift by 10 arcmin by 10 arcmin. Note the increase in the red fog as you are carried from z=0.2 to z=1.2.
