Zooming in on Thor’s Helmet
This video sequence starts with a broad view of the Milky Way before closing in on the sky close to the familiar bright star Sirius. The final sequence shows a new VLT image of the Thor’s Helmet Nebula taken on the occasion of ESO’s 50th Anniversary, 5 October 2012, with the help of Brigitte Bailleul — winner of the Tweet Your Way to the VLT! competition.
