  • We present U, B, V, R, I, Hα and NUV photometry of 14 galaxies in the very local Universe (within 10 Mpc). Most objects are dwarf irregular galaxies (dIrr) and are probably associated with the NGC 672/IC 1727 and NGC 784 galaxy groups. The galaxies are at low redshift (51 ≤ v⊙≤ 610 km s−1) and most appear projected on the sky as a 6° long linear filament. We show that the galaxy positions along this filament correlate with their radial velocity, hinting to an interpretation as a single… CONTINUE READING
