A Three Dimensional Overview of the Local Group. Galaxies with Active Operations are in Red. (outer radius = 5,000,000 light years)

The Local Group is the group of galaxies that include the Milky Way Galaxy. The group comprises more than 30 galaxies, with its gravitational center located between the Milky Way Galaxy and the Andromeda Galaxy. The galaxies of the Local Group cover a 10 million light-year diameter. The group is part of the Virgo Supercluster.

Milky Way Galactic SystemEdit

Consists of Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy, Large Magellanic Cloud, Small Magellanic Cloud, Canis Major Dwarf, Ursa Minor Dwarf, Draco Dwarf, Carina Dwarf, Sextans Dwarf, Sculptor Dwarf, Fornax Dwarf, Leo I, Leo II, and Ursa Major Dwarf.

Andromeda Galactic SystemEdit

Consists of M32, M110, NGC 147, NGC 185, Andromeda I, Andromeda II, Andromeda III, Andromeda IV, Andromeda V, Pegasus Dwarf Spheroid (aka Andromeda VI), Cassiopeia Dwarf (aka Andromeda VII), Andromeda VIII, Andromeda IX, and Andromeda X.

Other SystemsEdit

The Triangulum Galaxy, is the third largest and only other ordinary spiral galaxy in the Local Group, it may be a secondary companion to Andromeda and has Pisces Dwarf as a satellite.

NGC 3109 (Ida), and its companions Sextans B and the Antlia Dwarf, are at an extreme distance from the center of the Local Group, but fall within the 5 MLy boundary. The other members of the group are gravitationally secluded from these large subgroups: IC10, IC1613, Phoenix Dwarf, Leo A, Tucana Dwarf, Cetus Dwarf, Pegasus Dwarf Irregular, Wolf-Lundmark-Melotte, Aquarius Dwarf, and Sagittarius Dwarf Irregular.
