PLACEMENT OF THE LOCAL CLUSTER OF GALAXIES
(figure available in print form)
1. Create the 12 galaxies from Hand Out
using cotton and wire.
2. Hand all 12 galaxies with fishing line in a high space refering to this illustration as a guide for coordinating their placement to each other.
With the Milky Way Galaxy as the center plane to work from, all those galaxies noted with a
line would hang lower and all the rest of the galaxies noted with a
line would hang above the Milky Way. Scale their distance from the chart on Hand Out
. Then it is just a matter of triangulation to hang each galaxy in it’s appropriate orientation to the Milky Way.
