Zooming into RCW 38

This zoom video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and ends with a close-up look at the dramatic star formation region RCW 38 in the constellation of Vela (The Sails). The final view of this region was captured during testing of the HAWK-I camera with the GRAAL adaptive optics system, which is installed on ESO's Very large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
