1992AJ....103..385S GALAXY REDSHIFTS IN AN EQUATORIAL FIELD IN VIRGO AND THE SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF LOCAL LYMAN ALPHA CLOUDS JOHN J. SALZER Arecibo Observatory, National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center, P. O. Box 995, Arecibo, Puerto Rico 00613 and Kitt Peak National Observatory, National Optical Astronomy Observatories, P. O. Box 26732, Tucson, Arizona 85726 Received 23 July 1991; revised 27 September 1991 ABSTRACT New redshifts are presented for 51 galaxies which lie in a narrow strip along the celestial equator in the range 11^h^15^m <= R.A. <= 14^h^15^m^. The redshifts are derived from a mixture of optical and H I spectra; for the latter subset (37 galaxies) we also present H I fluxes and line widths. The spatial distribution of the galaxies in this field is compared with the locations of the large H I cloud discovered by Giovanelli and Haynes and the nearby Ly {alpha} clouds recently found toward 3C 273. One of the two Ly {alpha} clouds in the Local Supercluster appears to be associated with a spiral galaxy, although the angular and physical separations (42 arcmin and 180 kpc) are large. The other nearby Ly {alpha} cloud and the large H I cloud appear to be more isolated. None of the nine Ly {alpha} clouds with velocities between 5000-20000 km s^-1^ are associated with any specific galaxies, but most appear to fall within or near the large-scale structures defined by the galaxies.
