The Great Attractor
region is a large flat bottom gravitational valley with a sphere of attraction that extends across the Laniakea Supercluster.
com/113150/what-is-the-great-attractor/) the Great Attractor
is a mysterious gravitational force pulling the Milky Way and thousands of galaxies toward it at incredible speed.
This was repeated a third time and I was tempted to change my spinner but as the copper mepps was such a favourite I decided to try a smaller version in the exact design knowing that the number two copper mepps was an equally great attractor

As a character in still another story, ``Love Explained,'' explains: ``More than Freudian psychology, more than Marxist ideology, quantum mechanics has been the Great Attractor
of the second half of this dying century - even though, speaking generally, almost none of us knows beans about it.
To supply the gravitational tug that might account for such motion, the team proposed, a huge concentration of matter, dubbed the Great Attractor
, must lie at least 150 million light-years from Earth (SN: 12/92, p.
Galaxies fall toward or away from one another in this landscape; the Milky Way and many others seem to be moving toward the Great Attractor
, a dense region in the vicinity of the Centaurus, Norma, and Hydra clusters about 160 million light-years away.
Most still-water fisheries are stocked at the beginning of a season and the stocking truck is a great attractor
to avian - and human - fishers
named that mass the Great Attractor
(SN: 4/4/91, p.
The gold-headed fly is a great attractor
and by letting it fish deep it will catch the grayling especially when there is frost about.
Prof Kraan-Korteweg and Dr Woudt jointly published a popular article on the Great Attractor
in the South African Journal Quest.
Even then, there are large-scale flows due to the gravitation of the Virgo Supercluster and more distant structures such as the Great Attractor
Astronomers reported they had defined and confirmed the existence of the Great Attractor
, a concentration of mass that significantly alters the rate at which the Milky Way and its galactic neighbors spread apart as the universe expands (137:60).
For one thing, the Great Attractor
appeared to be at least 10 times more massive than the Virgo cluster, but it didn't seem to contain 10 times as many galaxies.
Some researchers attribute such deviations to a localized concentration of mass, dubbed the Great Attractor
(SN: 1/27/90, p.
