Zooming in on the planetary nebula Fleming 1

This video starts with a wide field view of the spectacular southern part of the Milky Way. We close in gradually on a small bubble of glowing gas in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). This is the planetary nebula Fleming 1, glowing gas shells and symmetrical jets around an aging pair of stars. The final detailed view comes from the FORS2 instrument on the Very Large Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
