Now I am looking to see if the local group of galaxies near the Milky
Way follows this same
spine-axis as the galaxies far away follows.

Now some of these pictures are difficult to reckon with but if I am
not mistaken it looks as though the Andromeda galaxy along with the
Triangulum galaxy is part of the Virgo supercluster in the same spine
axis as the Centaurus supercluster and in the opposite direction we
have the Leo galaxies and the Sextans galaxies pointing in the way of
the Perseus-Pisces supercluster. But the amazing feature is that few
if any galaxies are to either side of this straight-line spine axis.
Maybe I am misreading the picture. But if I am not, then the small
local group seems to follow the same pattern as the larger atlas of
far away superclusters.


Only Drexel's Math Forum has done a excellent, simple and fair author-
archiving of AP posts for the past 15 years as seen here:

whole entire Universe is just one big atom
where dots of the electron-dot-cloud are galaxies
