We report a direct observational evidence for the existence of the galaxy spin alignments with the local tidal shears. We calculate the real space tidal field from the density field reconstructed recently from the Two Mass Redshift Survey (2MRs) by Erdogdu et al. in 2006. Then, we select late-type face-on spiral galaxies from the Tully Galaxy Catalogue and calculate the orientations of their spin axes relative to the 2MRS tidal field. We find a clear signal of the intrinsic correlations between… CONTINUE READING
