The Local Group is the group of galaxies that includes our galaxy, the Milky Way. The group comprises over 30 galaxies, with its gravitational center located somewhere between the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. The galaxies of the Local Group cover a 10 million light-year diameter (see 1 E22 m for distance comparisons) and have a binary (dumbbell)[1] shape. The group is estimated to have a total mass of (1.29 ± 0.14)×1012M.[1] Image File history File links Gnome_globe_current_event. ...
