Zooming in on the radio galaxy Centaurus A, as seen by ALMA

This zoom sequence starts with a broad view of the Milky Way, and zooms in to a visible-light view of the radio galaxy Centaurus A. The final view shows a combination of ALMA and near-infrared observations. The new ALMA observations, shown in a range of green, yellow and orange colours, reveal the position and motion of the clouds of gas in the galaxy. They are the sharpest and most sensitive such observations ever made.
