Comparison of the Small Magellanic Cloud in infrared and visible light
This view compares a huge new infrared image of the Small Magellanic Cloud from ESO's VISTA telescope to a more traditional view in visible light. By observing at longer infrared wavelengths VISTA can penetrate the dust clouds of this small neighbouring galaxy and reveal the stars much more clearly.Credit:
