This new 17-minute video tour, the ‘Cosmography of the Local Universe‘ by Helene Courtois, Daniel Pomarede, R. Brent Tully, Yehuda Hoffman, and Denis Courtois, gathers together our current atlas of the universe in a charming and fascinating tutorial. The map encompasses galaxies up to around 3 billion light years from us.
