Zooming in on Messier 78

This zoom sequence opens with a wide-field view of the Milky Way. We close in on the constellation of Orion and as we zoom in on to a region close to Orion’s famous belt, a fascinating region of dust and reflection nebulosity starts to come into view. The final scene reveals a colourful and richly detailed new image of Messier 78 taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile.


ESO/S. Brunier/Chris Johnson, (cuttinedgeobservatory.com) and Igor Chekalin. Music: John Dyson (from the album Moonwind)
