Zooming in on NGC 6357

This zoom video sequence starts with a broad view of the Milky Way. We close in on one of the regions of active star formation in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion) and a curious landscape of vast numbers of stars, glowing gas and dust is revealed. The final view shows the most detailed image so far of a spectacular part of this stellar nursery, named NGC 6357.
