Zooming in on the Prawn Nebula

This video sequence starts with a view of the rich central parts of the Milky Way and then closes in on a spectacular region of star formation known as the Prawn Nebula (IC 4628) in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). The final close up view is a very sharp image taken using the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
