We report the discovery from the H I Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS) of a gas cloud associated with the asymmetric spiral galaxy NGC 2442. This object, designated HIPASS J0731-69, contains ~109 M☉ of H I, or nearly one-third as much atomic gas as NGC 2442 itself. No optical counterpart to any part of HIPASS J0731-69 has yet been identified, consistent with the gas being diffuse and its streamlike kinematics. If the gas in HIPASS J0731-69 was once part of NGC 2442, then it was most likely a… 

Gaseous tidal debris found in the NGC 3783 group

We have conducted wide-field Hi mapping of a ∼5.5 x 5.5-deg 2 region surrounding the NGC 3783 galaxy group, to an Hi mass limit of ∼4 x 10 8 M ⊙ . The observations were made using the multibeam

MeerKAT-64 discovers wide-spread tidal debris in the nearby NGC 7232 galaxy group

We report the discovery of large amounts of previously undetected cold neutral atomic hydrogen (H i) around the core triplet galaxies in the nearby NGC 7232 galaxy group with MeerKAT. With a

WALLABY Early Science – II. The NGC 7232 galaxy group

We report on neutral hydrogen (H i) observations of the NGC 7232 group with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP). These observations were conducted as part of the Wide-field

A Dark Hydrogen Cloud in the Virgo Cluster

VIRGOHI 21 is an H I source detected in the Virgo Cluster survey of Davies et al. that has a neutral hydrogen mass of 108 M☉ and a velocity width of ΔV20 = 220 km s-1. From the Tully-Fisher relation,

Optically Unseen H I Detections toward the Virgo Cluster Detected in the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey

We report the discovery by the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA (ALFALFA) survey of eight H I features not coincident with stellar counterparts in the Virgo Cluster region. All of the H I clouds have cz <

The 1000 Brightest HIPASS Galaxies: H I Properties

The HIPASS Bright Galaxy Catalog is presented, which contains the 1000 H I brightest galaxies in the southern sky as obtained from the H i Parkes All-Sky Survey, and several new structures are seen for the first time.

H I debris in the IC 1459 galaxy group

We present HI synthesis imaging of the giant elliptical galaxy IC 1459 and its surroundings with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA). Our search for extended HI emission revealed a large


We present Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) observations of a galaxy-sized intergalactic H i cloud (“the Vela Cloud”) in the NGC 3256 galaxy group. The group contains the prominent merging


We present observations of an H i cloud complex most likely located in the Virgo galaxy cluster, first reported by Kent et al. The complex consists of five clouds, detected in the dataset of the

An extremely optically dim tidal feature in the gas-rich interacting galaxy group NGC 871/NGC 876/NGC 877

We present GMRT HI observations and deep CFHT MegaCam optical images of the gas-rich interacting galaxy group NGC 871/NGC 876/NGC 877 (hereafter NGC 871/6/7). Our high-resolution data sets provide a

An Extragalactic H I Cloud with No Optical Counterpart?

We report the discovery, from the H I Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS), of an isolated cloud of neutral hydrogen, which we believe to be extragalactic. The H I mass of the cloud (HIPASS J1712-64) is

Galactic-Scale Outflow and Supersonic Ram-Pressure Stripping in the Virgo Cluster Galaxy NGC 4388

The Hawaii Imaging Fabry-Perot Interferometer (HIFI) on the University of Hawaii 2.2 m telescope was used to map the Hα and [O III] λ5007 emission-line profiles across the entire disk of the edge-on
