DescriptionLocations of 250,000 galaxies from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey. Coloured by local density from most dense (red) to least dense (blue). Milky Way is at the centre of the map, but not at the centre of the Universe. Number of galaxies falls off with distance, which is a selection effect - only bright galaxies are seen at largest distances.
