Zooming into the MUSE view of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field

This zoom sequence takes the viewer from a wide panorama of the sky deep into the faint southern constellation of Fornax (The Furnace). This is the site of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, a tiny patch of sky that has been extensively observed by many telescopes on Earth and in space as a window on the early Universe. The final image has been created from observations from the MUSE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. They form the deepest ever spectroscopic survey.
