An unknown force is pulling the Milky Way and all else towards it at 14 million mph (Spoiler Alert: This is GOOD News!!)

The Night Sky in April 2015: the Great Attractor is neither a black hole or a super-cluster of galaxies, but we are travelling towards it inexorably

The Great Attractor: what is this thing?

(The Telegraph) Two individual galaxies in Virgo are worth looking at: the Sombrero Hat galaxy (M104) and M87, with a jagged shaft of light sticking out of it, are both mysterious in their own right.
But the real mystery of Virgo lies further away. The smallest unit of galaxies out there is our local group, comprising the Milky Way, the Andromeda galaxy and about 50 others. The Local Group is in turn part of the Virgo Supercluster containing some 40,000 members.
Beyond all this is an unseen object called the Great Attractor which is pulling the Milky Way and all else towards it at the terrific speed of 14 million mph. What is this thing, how far away is it, and what will happen when we reach it? No one knows.
The most massive possible black hole would be nowhere near massive enough to cause this effect, nor is there any super-super cluster of galaxies to account for it. We are left with the possibility of some yet unknown force.
