Zooming into a deep infrared image of the Orion Nebula

This video starts from a wide view of the night sky and zooms in on the famous constellation of Orion. The final part gives a close-up view of a spectacular new image of the Orion Nebula star-formation region that was obtained from multiple exposures using the HAWK-I infrared camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. This is the deepest view ever of this region and reveals more very faint planetary-mass objects than expected.
