Dark Flow

(non-random patterns in peculiar velocity of galaxy clusters)

Dark Flow is a pattern in the movement of Galaxy Clusters (CL) suggesting a force other than whatever powers Hubble's Law (Hubble Constant (H0)), e.g., the Gravity of a compact but very massive object. Observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) are used to study it. The dark flow is toward the Great Attractor.
