Zooming in on the star-forming region Sharpless 29

This zoom video sequence takes the viewer towards the rich central regions of the Milky Way, in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). Many striking clouds of glowing gas are visible and the final view shows a richly detailed new image of the star-forming region Sharpless 29 from ESO’s VLT Survey Telescope.
