Zooming in on the Tarantula Nebula

This zoom video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and ends with a close-up look at a rich region of star formation in the nearby Large Magellanic Cloud, in the southern constellation of Dorado (The Dolphinfish). The final view of these clouds was captured by ESO's VLT Survey Telescope at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
