# Local group center

In which direction lies the center of the local group?

I'd imagine it would be roughly in between Andromeda and the Milky Way, since I believe those two galaxies hold the vast majority of mass in the local group.

I'd imagine it would be roughly in between Andromeda and the Milky Way,

Where'd that be (in the sky)?

The centre would be directly in line with the Andromeda galaxy as seen from here in the Milky Way.

Andromeda is on the neck of the constellation Pegasus, towards Cassiopeia.
