Abstract: We introduce the first entire-sky catalog of the most isolated nearby galaxies with radial velocities VLG < 3500 km/s. This kind of cosmic “orphans” amounts to 4% among all known galaxies within the same velocity range. We describe a criterion of isolation applied to select our sample, the “Local Orphan Galaxies”, and discuss their basic optical and HI properties.
