- 8. Our Country - the Virgo Supercluster
- Well the answer is the Virgo Super Cluster, which you see here. The Milky Way is on the edge of the Virgo Super Cluster. Our Super Cluster is smaller than most, it is ONLY 60 million light years across.
- You will see a part marked the avoidance zone. This area cannot be seen, since the Milky Way hides that part of our Super Cluster. Most of the galaxies of the Virgo Super Cluster are about 30 million light years from us.
