The Virgo Cluster, wich contains 1,300 galaxies aproximately, is at same time the central region of the Virgo Supercluster wich contains one hundred more of others clusters and galaxies groups (englobing our own Milky Way). Moreover at same time the superclusters are the bricks wich making up the large and huge walls wich shape the cavernous structure of the Universe.
Because to limitations in this deep field image of Virgo Cluster we can see "only" 31 galaxies (each one with its hundreds of billions of stars). The three brightest around magnitude 9 are: M 87 (up), M 86 (center), and M 84 (a bit more down); the rest of galaxies going down unto 13th magnitude.
