Abstract: We have identified close pairs and triplets of galaxies in SDSS commissioning imaging data. The data set is from one of the SDSS equatorial scans covering an area close to 100 square degrees. We have estimated the angular correlation function of these galaxy systems and show that they appear to be appreciably more strongly clustered than are single galaxies.
