Speaking of cool...the picture of the Black Hole we saw yesterday is at the
center of M87, a giant elliptical galaxy, one of the largest known, that
has 200 times as many stars as the Milky Way. And M87 is at the center of
the Virgo cluster which contains 1300 Galaxies. And the Virgo cluster is at
the center of the Virgo supercluster, a cluster of clusters, and one of
those clusters is the "Local Group" that contains Andromeda, the Milky Way,
and a few dwarf galaxies.

So the Earth goes around the sun, and the sun goes around the center of the
Milky Way and the Milky Way goes around the center of the Local Group and
the Local Group goes around the Virgo Supercluster and the center of the Virgo
Supercluster is the Virgo Cluster and the center of the Virgo Cluster is
M87 and the center of M87 is the black Hole we saw yesterday and the center
of that is a mystery.
