The Ultimate World Address

Astronomers have finally got around to naming the supercluster of galaxies that the Milky Way sits on the edge of and it's now called Laniakea.
Even more exciting is that we can now add it to our ultimate address so try this out next time you want to impress someone and you have a large enough envelope because at the moment, this is the longest address it is possible to have: 

100 My Street,
My Town,
My City,
My County,
United Kingdom,
Post Code,
Northern Hemisphere,
Inner Solar System,
Solar System,
Solar Interstellar Neighbourhood,
Orion Arm,
Milky Way Galaxy,

Virgo Supercluster,
Pisces-Cetus Supercluster Complex,
Observable Universe,
