  • We have found that KK 246, the only confirmed galaxy located within the nearby Tully Void, is a dwarf galaxy with an extremely extended H I disk and signs of an H I cloud with anomalous velocity. It also exhibits clear misalignment between the kinematical major and minor axes, indicative of an oval distortion, and a general misalignment between the H I and optical major axes. We measure an H I mass of (1.05 ± 0.08) × 108 M ☉, and an H I extent five times that of the stellar disk, one of the… CONTINUE READING
