A voyage to the heart of the Milky Way

In this zoom sequence we start with a view of the central parts of the Milky Way Galaxy and work inwards towards the Arches Cluster, buried deep beyond the dust clouds. At the last stage, we see the transition from visible to near-infrared observations, piercing through the clouds and revealing the stars of the Arches Cluster.
