1993ApJ...412L..13F SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF SPIRAL GALAXIES IN THE VIRGO CLUSTER FROM THE TULLY-FISHER RELATION M. FUKUGITA, S. OKAMURA, AND N. YASUDA Received 1993 February 22; accepted 1993 April 29 ABSTRACT A Tully-Fisher analysis is carried out for a complete sample of spiral galaxies in the Virgo Cluster with the use of newly obtained accurate photometry data. We present the evidence that spiral galaxies in the Virgo Cluster are distributed in an elongated region, like a filament, which extends from 13 to 30 Mpc almost along the line of sight (offset 6^deg^ toward SSW) with the maximum of the density distribution at around 15 Mpc. This explains the discrepancy in the distance modulus and the dispersion among various authors who carried out Tully-Fisher analyses for the Virgo Cluster. Subject headings: distance scale - galaxies: clusters: individual (Virgo) - galaxies: distances and redshifts
