Zooming in on Ross 128

This zoom video sequence takes the viewer towards the sprawling constellation of Virgo (The Virgin). The first thing we encounter on our journey is the faint red dwarf star Ross 128, just 11 light-years from the Earth and the closest object in the constellation of Virgo. This star is orbited by the Earth-mass temperate planet Ross 128 b.
