Panning across the Cat’s Paw and Lobster Nebulae

This video sequence takes a close look at a spectacular image from the VLT Survey Telescope. It shows the Cat’s Paw Nebula (NGC 6334) and the Lobster Nebula (NGC 6357). These are regions of active star formation where the hot young stars are causing the surrounding hydrogen gas to glow red. The very rich field of view also includes dark clouds of dust.
