A close-up view of the planetary nebula Fleming 1 seen with ESO’s Very Large Telescope

This pan video shows a close-up of a new ESO Very Large Telescope image of the planetary nebula Fleming 1 in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). This striking object is a glowing cloud of gas around a dying star. New observations have shown that it is likely that a very rare pair of white dwarf stars lies at the heart of this object, a fact that can fully explain the remarkably symmetric structures of the jets in the surrounding gas clouds.
