Virgo Supercluster

Have you ever wondered what the rings of Saturn really look like, or what planets are made of? Do you dream of outer space, and plan to sign up for the first tour of the Moon? Study astronomy and expand your view of the universe. Discover the origins of the universe and observe countless celestial orbs as the travel across the sky.

Contemplating the cosmos is an exercise that stretches the brain of humans, who live on the third rock from the sun in an arm of the Milky Way Galaxy – a collection of more than 200,000,000,000 stars much like the sun. Our galaxy is in a group of a few dozen galaxies called the “Local Group,” and this group is part of the Virgo Supercluster, a collection of over 100 galaxies. There are millions of superclusters in our universe, making the total number of stars and possible solar systems far too big to comprehend.

Are you excited to understand how tiny you are? Amateur astronomy is an easy and relatively inexpensive hobby to follow. Most discount and department stores stock telescopes that will put the magic of the midnight skies within your reach. Today amateur astronomers help the pros observe, catalog and study the stars, even making remarkable discoveries from time to time.
