Pan Across Galaxy NGC 2366

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has made detailed observations of the dwarf galaxy NGC 2366. While it lacks the elegant spiral arms of many larger galaxies, NGC 2366 is home to a bright, star-forming nebula and is close enough for astronomers to discern its individual stars. This video pans across Hubble’s observations of this galaxy.  Credit:  NASA, ESA.
