Zooming in on the strange galaxy Centaurus A
This video zoom sequence starts with a broad view of the Milky Way. We close in on a region not far from the plane of a the galaxy and can soon see a strange fuzz with a dark band across it. This is the famous peculiar radio galaxy Centaurus A. The final view shows a new and very detailed image from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.
