Voyage in the Milky Way

This video makes us travel through our galactic home, the Milky Way. Using the magnificent 800-million-pixel, 360-degree panoramic image featured in the GigaGalaxy Zoom project, launched by ESO within the framework of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009), we move towards the Galactic Centre, then across the Galactic Plane that runs horizontally through the image.


ESO/S. Brunier. Music: John Dyson (from the album "Moonwind")
