The Virgo Cluster

Post by Christopher K. » September 2nd, 2015, 1:32 pm

For sheer size and grandeur, not too many other natural creations rival the Virgo Cluster--except of course the Local Supercluster to which it belongs. The Virgo Cluster is the nearest large grouping of galaxies, and it claims as its famous citizens M60, M88, M89, M99 and M100.
