The orientation of warps in the Local Group.

ZURITA A. and BATTANER E.

Abstract (from CDS):

The three major spiral galaxies in the Local Group are known to be warped. The question is investigated of whether or not these three warps are aligned. Using available HI observations we find that they are noticeably aligned. Vectors defining the warp orientation form the following angles: [M 31, M 33]=33°; [M 31, Milky Way]=35°; [M 33, Milky Way]=4°. The alignment of the directions of the warp lines of nodes is lower even though also noticeable.
