Zooming in on the brilliant star VFTS 682 in the Large Magellanic Cloud

This sequence starts with a view of the Milky Way and its two small neighbouring galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds. We zoom in towards the Large Magellanic Cloud and focus on the huge star formation region around the Tarantula Nebula. The final sequence shows a very detailed view, captured in both visible and infrared light, of the dense star cluster R 136 and the very brilliant, but strangely isolated, star VFTS 682.
