  A List of the Nearest Superclusters
It has been long known that galaxies tend to congregate into clusters.
Below is a list of most of the major known superclusters within 1 billion light years.
This is a map of all of the Abell galaxy clusters listed in the above table plotted onto the supergalactic plane.

Galaxies areheld together by gravitational attraction and the galactic components orbit a common centre.
In spiral galaxies, the spiral arms have the shape of approximate logarithmic spirals, a pattern that can be theoretically shown to result from a disturbance in auniformly rotating mass of stars.
In the 1970s it was realized that the total visible mass of galaxies (from stars and gas) does notproperly account for the speed of the rotating gas, thus leading to the postulation of dark matter.

 Galaxy
Most galaxies are several thousand to several hundred thousand light years in diameter and are usually separated from one another by distances on the order of millions of light years.
Intergalactic space, the space between galaxies, is a near vacuum with an average density of less than one atom per cubic meter of gas or dust.

Intergalactic space, the space between galaxies, is a tenuous plasma with an average density of less than one atom per cubic meter of gas or dust.
Clusters of galaxies are often dominated by a single giant elliptical galaxy, which over time tidally destroys its satellite galaxies and adds their mass to its own.
Superclusters are giant collections containing tens of thousands of galaxies, found in clusters, groups and sometimes individually; at the supercluster scale, galaxies are arranged into sheets and filaments surrounding vast empty voids.

Some extremely peculiar galaxies are located in close groups of two or three, and their tidal interactions have caused distortions of spiral arms, producing warped disks and long streamer tails.
In viewing a galaxy with a telescope, inferring its distance is impossible, for it may be a gigantic galaxy at a large distance or a smaller one closer to earth.
Galaxies are generally not isolated in space but are often members of small or moderate-size groups, which in turn form large clusters of galaxies.

Stars are almost always found in collections called galaxies, together with gas, dust, and "dark matter"; ~10-20% of a galaxy is composed of stars, gas, and dust.
Galaxies are held together by gravitational attraction and the galactic components orbit a common centre.
Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, sometimes simply called the Galaxy (with uppercase), is a large barred spiral galaxy about 30 kiloparsecs or 100,000 light years in diameter and 3,000 light years in width, contains about 300 billion stars and has a total mass of about a trillion times the mass of the Sun.

Some galaxies produce most of their energy deep in the infrared, and some are so diffuse and faint as to be barely detectable against the faint glow of the Earth's night sky.
Several classifications for galaxies were proposed early in their study; Hubble's classification system has proven remarkably robust, correlating well with physically interesting measurements such as stellar content, gas content, and environment despite being designed only to describe the appearance of the galaxy as seen on photographs with blue-sensitive emulsions.
Elliptical galaxies were denoted by the letter E and a number describing the galaxy's apparent shape - 0 for a completely round form, 5 for one twice as long as wide, and 7 for the apparently flattest genuine ellipticals.

 SEDS Messier Database
During the years from 1758 to 1782 Charles Messier, a French astronomer (1730 - 1817), compiled a list of approximately 100 diffuse objects that were difficult to distinguish from comets through the telescopes of the day.
It was one of the first major milestones in the history of the discovery of Deep Sky objects, as it was the first more comprehensive and more reliable list: Only four objects were initially missing because of data reduction errors, which could be figured out later though.
Also, updates of these webpages are still in slow mode with a long queue of stuff still to be worked in; sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

 [70.01] Establishing Isolation for a Target List of Elliptical Galaxies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Because most galaxies tend to exist in associations that range in density from loose groups to rich clusters, mergers and interactions play dominant roles in the evolution of a typical galaxy.
This gives them a unique evolutionary history, allows for evaluation of the overall importance of interaction and merger in elliptical galaxy formation and evolution, and provides a basis for the determination of the time scales involved in the appearance and disappearance of the signatures of galaxy merger.
Thus, a method of identifying objects as galaxies near a candidate isolated elliptical, and determining if they are physical neighbors or the result of projection effects, without the use of redshift data, is presented, applied to a subset of elliptical galaxies in the Karachenseva (SaSAO 1973) catalog.
