Zooming in on the star cluster NGC 2367

This video starts with a view of the southern Milky Way and takes us on a journey towards the open star cluster NGC 2367, not far from the bright star Sirius in the constellation of Canis Major (The Greater Dog). The MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile captured this richly colourful view. The brighter cluster stars are very young by stellar standards and still shine with a hot bluish colour.
