We present results of an ongoing program at the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope for spectroscopy of BL Lac objects (BLLs) lacking a firm redshift estimate, and here we report on 15 objects. For 11 sources we confirm the BL Lac classification, and determine new redshifts for three objects, one with weak emission lines (PKS 1057 − 79, z = 0.569) and two with absorptions from the host galaxy (RBS 1752, z = 0.449; RBS 1915, z = 0.243); moreover, a subdamped Lyα system is detecteddoi:10.1088/0004-6256/137/1/337 fatcat:3g5eguor2bce3bgkjyd3bmbhne
