Zooming in on NGC 253

This zoom video sequence starts with a view of a rather empty part of the sky that includes the constellations of Cetus and Sculptor. As we close in an elongated haze appears. This is the nearby spiral galaxy NGC 253, one of the brightest in the southern skies. The final sequence shows a very detailed new view of this galaxy from the VLT Survey Telescope.
