Time-lapse sequence with VLT and NTT images

Here, actual images, collected over the past 16 years, have been assembled into a time-lapse video. The real motion of the stars has been accelerated by a factor 32 million. The individual images have been shifted and stretched to the same scale and orientation and cover the central part of the colour image presented at the top of the main press release.
