AbstractThe nature and the extent of the Great Attractor has been the subject of much debate, not in the least due to the unfortunate position of its central part being behind the Milky Way. We here present the latest results from our deep optical galaxy search in the southern Milky Way. A full view of the southern hemisphere is emerging, revealing ACO 3627 as the most prominent concentration of galaxies in the southern sky. Our follow-up spectroscopic observations support the idea that ACO 3627 is the dominant component of a ``great wall’’-structure, similar to Coma in the (northern) Great Wall.
