Abstract : In this paper the performances of the Automatic Alignment sensing and control system in the Virgo gravitational wave detector, during the second scientific run from July 7 2009 to January 8 2010, are described. The accuracy of the angular control loops fulfills the original Virgo requirements, reaching the accuracy of a few nano-radians for the most critical angular degrees of freedom, and the control noise is below the Virgo design sensitivity in the whole detection band.
