Zooming in on the VISTA view of the Tarantula Nebula

This zoom sequence starts with a broad panorama of one of our neighbouring galaxies, the Large Magellanic Cloud, and we gradually close in on the Tarantula Nebula, a very active star-forming region. First we see a detailed visible light image obtained with Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile and the sequence ends with a new near-infrared VISTA image of the region around the Tarantula Nebula that was obtained as part of the VISTA Magellanic Cloud Survey.
