Comparison of the Large Magellanic Cloud in infrared and visible light

This video compares a huge new infrared image of the Large 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 neighbouring galaxy and reveal the stars much more clearly.
