Poster: VST Image of the Star-forming Swan Nebula

The first released VST (VLT Survey Telescope) image shows the spectacular star-forming region Messier 17, also known as the Omega Nebula or the Swan Nebula, as it has never been seen before. This vast region of gas, dust and hot young stars lies in the heart of the Milky Way in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer). More information about this image is available in the ESO image archive.
