B Is Everything outside the local group moving away from us?

  1. Feb 19, 2017 #1
    This is a simple question but i keep finding conflicting answers and don't understand scientific and mathamatical language well enough to consult reliable data.. 'Cause i'm a dunce.

    So, is EVERYTHING outside the local group leaving us, or are some things in the virgo supercluster contracting? For example, is M81 coming or going?

    No. M86 is not. I believe M81 is not as well, but I am certain about M86.
