A previous suggestion is substantiated that our Galaxy is appended to what is now called the Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex. The evidence is twofold. (1) With a sample of rich clusters that is complete to beyond the mean distance of the complex, there is percolation across ≡300 h75-1Mpc at a separations scale length of 38 h75-1Mpc. (2) A one-dimensional correlation analysis confirms that rich clusters within the complex lie preferentially in a plane (or possibly in strata) parallel to the plane of the Local Supercluster as defined by nearby galaxies. The main plane of the Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex, centered ≡200 h75-1Mpc away, is coincident with the principal plane of the Local Supercluster. The thickness of the Pisces-Cetus main plane has FWHM ≡ 40 h75-1Mpc. The coincidence of the two planes of structure on such radically different scales suggests there is a physical connection. It would follow that the structure on a scale of 0.1 c has a physical significance.
