Zooming in on the active galaxy NGC 1433

This video sequence starts with a broad view of the southern sky and zooms in on the faint constellation of Horologium (The Clock). When we get closer we start to see a striking spiral galaxy known as NGC 1433. The central part of this galaxy hosts a supermassive black hole and observations of its surroundings using ALMA have revealed both a spiral structure to the molecular gas as well as a newly discovered outflow of material.
