Gergely D��lya and Peter Raffai (Eotvos Univ.) reports on behalf of the GLADE
team:

We have found 13,960 galaxies in the GLADE catalog [1,2], within the
updated 90% GW
localization area (bayestar1.fits.gz, the preferred skymap) reported by the
LVC in GCN 24237, and within 423 +/- 128 Mpc distance limits.

The galaxies found can be accessed on the GLADE website (4 MB txt file;
please note that the order of galaxies in the list only follow the ordering
as the appear in GLADE):

There are 935 galaxies within the 50% GW localization area and within
the same distance limits (253 kB txt file; please note that the order of
galaxies in the list only follow the ordering as the appear in GLADE):
