Zooming in on the dwarf galaxy WLM

This sequence starts with a broad view of the rather faint constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster). As we zoom, we close in on a faint galaxy, known as WLM. The final detailed image, captured with the OmegaCAM camera on ESO’s VLT Survey Telescope in Chile, shows the galaxy in great detail, including many of its component stars and some glowing clouds of hydrogen.
