Zooming in on the star cluster NGC 3766
This zoom video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and ends with a close-up look at a spectacular group of young stars — the open star cluster NGC 3766 in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). Very careful observations of these stars by a group from the Geneva Observatory using the Swiss 1.2-metre Leonhard Euler Telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile have shown that 36 of the stars are members of a new and unknown class of variable star.
