The Universe

Our galaxy is just one of thousands that lie within 100 million light years. The map at the bottom
shows how galaxies tend to cluster into groups, the largest nearby cluster is the Virgo cluster a concentration
of several hundred galaxies which dominates the galaxy groups around it. Collectively, all of these groups
of galaxies are known as the Virgo Supercluster. The second richest cluster in this volume of space is the Fornax
Cluster, but it is not nearly as rich as the Virgo cluster. Only bright galaxies are depicted on the map,
our galaxy is the dot in the very centre.
