Zooming in on the star formation region NGC 2035

Loading player...

This zoom sequence starts with a broad view of the whole sky. We gradually close in on the Large Magellanic Cloud, a small neighbouring galaxy to our Milky Way. The final close-up shows a VLT image of NGC 2035, a star formation region that has an adjacent remnant created by a supernova explosion.
