Zooming in on the red supergiant star Antares

This video starts from a wide field view of the Milky Way, including the prominent constellation of Scorpius (The Scopion). It zooms in towards Scorpius’s bright red heart — the red supergiant star Antares. The final view shows an image of the surface of Antares — the best ever of any star other than the Sun — taken with ESO’s Very Large Telescope Interferometer.
