This video journey takes the viewer on a three million light-year trip to the Triangulum Galaxy, Messier 33. The final view, from the VLT Survey Telescope (VST), is amongst the most detailed wide-field views of this object ever taken and shows the many glowing red gas clouds in the spiral arms with particular clarity.
