Abstract: The 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS) is a spectroscopic survey of the entire southern sky with |b| > 10 degrees, based on the 2MASS near infrared galaxy catalogue. It is conducted with the 6dF multi-fiber spectrograph attached to the 1.2-m UK Schmidt Telescope. The survey will produce redshifts for some 170,000 galaxies, and peculiar velocities for about 15,000 and is expected to be complete by 2005 June.
