Panning across part of the Seagull Nebula

This pan video gives a close-up view of the intricate structure of part of the Seagull Nebula. These wisps of gas and dust are known as Sharpless 2-296 and form part of the “wings” of the celestial bird. This region of the sky is a fascinating muddle of intriguing astronomical objects — a mix of dark and glowing red clouds, weaving amongst bright stars. This new view was captured by the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile.
