3D animation of the Running Chicken Nebula

This 3D animation of the Running Chicken Nebula imagines what it might feel like to fly close to these swirling clouds of gas and dust. This video is based on a real image from the VLT Survey Telescope, hosted at ESO’s Paranal site; however, the 3D location of the stars shown here is only indicative.
