Hubble focuses on the 'Great Attractor'

It appears that the "great attractor" has moved.
Previously it was the general direction of travel of our Galaxy's orbit around Andromeda. It now appeares that the peculiar motion of our Galaxy's orbit has been taken into account.
The Norma cluster is also noticeable for its absence in the bulk of photos, so this one is a first.
I like the pic of the edge on foreground spiral. There should also be a host of giant E galaxies, tidally stripped lenticulars and a big cD with radio lobes.
In their absence the Norma cluster would not be the great attractor and would be instead a foreground cluster.
Have a nice day: Ag
