Zooming onto Messier 4

Loading player...

This video combines the first two incredible images of ESO’s GigaGalaxy Zoom project ― the Milky Way panorama taken by Serge Brunier and the more central vista obtained by Stéphane Guisard. Starting from a general view, the video zooms onto the very colourful Rho Ophiuchi and Antares region, and finally onto the globular cluster known as Messier 4.


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