FRB 20220610A: fast radio burst and host-galaxy observations

The highly dispersed Fast Radio Burst FRB 20220610A was detected and localised by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP).  Subsequent imaging and spectroscopic observations in optical and infrared wavelengths with the Very Large Telescope (VLT) confirmed the FRB originated at a redshift of z=1.016, making it the most distant FRB at the time of detection by nearly a factor of two. This collection presents the observations of the FRB and its host galaxy, presented in Ryder et al. The radio observations include the FRB detection, localisation, and high time resolution properties, all derived from data acquired with ASKAP.  The optical observations include imagining observations in the optical band with VLT/FORS2 instrument, and near infrared (NIR) with VLT/HAWK-I.  Broad band optical and NIR spectroscopic observations are from the VLT/X-shooter spectrograph.
