(Virgo SC, Local Supercluster, LSC, LS)
(supercluster including the Local Group)

The Virgo Supercluster (aka Virgo SC, Local Supercluster, LSC, or LS) is a supercluster including the Virgo Cluster and the Local Group, and other galaxy clusters and groups, such as the Fornax Cluster. It has now been declared to be part of the Laniakea Supercluster. With this new information, the term Local Supercluster is a bit ambiguous.
