TitleThe Galaxy Motion Relative to Nearby Galaxies and the Local Velocity Field
AuthorsKarachentsev, I. D.; Makarov, D. A.
AbstractWe consider a sample of 103 galaxies with radial velocities V_0_ < 500 km s^-1^ and distances obtained by means of photometric distance indicators: Cepheids (n = 17), brightest stars (n = 69), and galaxy membership in the nearby bound groups (n = 17). Ranking the galaxies with their distance R we determine a running apex for the Sun, the Galaxy, and the Local Group as a function of R. For the solar apex with respect ...
