Zooming in on a rich region of star formation

This zoom video takes you deep into the central parts of the Milky Way, home to many regions of star formation. The final sequence shows the faint, glowing cloud of gas called Sharpless 2-54, the iconic Eagle Nebula (Messier 16) and the Omega Nebula (Messier 17). They are seen in a spectacular huge image from ESO VLT Survey Telescope (VST).
