Star Formation Region NGC 3324

Starting from a broad view of the Milky Way, this zoom video closes in on spectacular region of star formation called NGC 3324 within the constellation of Carina (The Keel of Jason’s ship, Argo). The final very detailed view comes from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.  Credit:  ESO
