The Cosmicflows database of galaxy distances that in the second edition contained 8188 entries is now expanded to 17,669 entries. The major additions are 2257 distances that we have derived from the correlation between galaxy rotation and luminosity with photometry at obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope and 8885 distances based on the Fundamental Plane methodology from the Six Degree Field Galaxy Survey collaboration. There are minor augmentations to the Tip of the Red Giant Branch and… 

Cosmicflows-4: The Catalog of ∼10,000 Tully–Fisher Distances

We present the distances of 9792 spiral galaxies lying within 15,000 km s−1 using the relation between luminosity and rotation rate of spiral galaxies. The sample is dominantly, but not exclusively,

Cosmicflows-4: The Calibration of Optical and Infrared Tully–Fisher Relations

This study is a part of the Cosmicflows-4 project with the aim of measuring the distances of more than ∼10,000 spiral galaxies in the local universe up to ∼15,000 km s − 1 . New H i line width

Cosmicflows-3: The South Pole Wall

Velocity and density field reconstructions of the volume of the universe within 0.05c derived from the Cosmicflows-3 catalog of galaxy distances has revealed the presence of a filamentary structure

A kinematic confirmation of the hidden Vela supercluster

The Universe region obscured by the Milky Way is very large and only future blind large H i redshift, and targeted peculiar surveys on the outer borders will determine how much mass is hidden

Galaxy Flows within 8000 km s−1 from Numerical Action Methods

The trajectories since z = 4 of systems of galaxies (“halos”) with cz < 8000 km s−1 are found through numerical action reconstructions. A set of 9719 halos from a Two Micron All Sky Survey group

A distance of 13 Mpc resolves the claimed anomalies of the galaxy lacking dark matter

The claimed detection of a diffuse galaxy lacking dark matter represents a possible challenge to our understanding of the properties of these galaxies and galaxy formation in general. The galaxy,

Numerous research topics rely on an improved cosmic distance scale (e.g., cosmology, gravitational waves) and the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database of Distances (NED-D) supports those efforts by

Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies in the M101 group and behind it.

We use images from the Hubble Space Telescope to determine the distances to a dozen objects with low surface brightness recently observed around the bright nearby spiral M101. Only two dwarf

The Distance and Motion of the Maffei Group

It has recently been suggested that the nearby galaxies Maffei 1 and 2 are farther in distance than previously thought, such that they no longer are members of the same galaxy group as IC 342. We

Cosmic flows in the nearby Universe: new peculiar velocities from SNe and cosmological constraints

The peculiar velocity field offers a unique way to probe dark matter density field on large scales at low redshifts. In this work, we have compiled a new sample of 465 peculiar velocities from low
