Galaxies are often described as giant cities, each containing hundreds of billions of stars. While our Milky Way galaxy is massive, it’s still a smaller piece of a much grander structure within our universe. Superclusters are supermassive structures within which thousands of galaxies are connected together by gravity. Dr. Brent Tully, astronomer at the Institute for Astronomy (IfA) helped identify the supercluster “Laniakea,” which means “immense heavens” in Hawaiian, and is home to our Milky Way galaxy. Join us at ‘Imiloa as Dr. Tully discusses Our Home Laniakea, The Supercluster of Galaxies on Friday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m.
