Zooming into the star cluster NGC 6520 and the dark cloud Barnard 86

This video sequence starts with a view of the spectacular Milky Way. As we zoom in towards the centre we see a huge cloud of faint stars, this is the Large Sagittarius Star Cloud. On top of this cloud there is a much smaller dark feature called Barnard 86 and in the final view from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile we see not only the gecko-shaped dark cloud but also its neighbouring star cluster NGC 6520.
