Zooming in on the globular star cluster Messier 55
This zoom sequence starts with a wide view of the spectacular Milky Way. We then close in on a fuzzy spot that proves to be a very rich star cluster, the globular Messier 55. In the final sequence we see a very detailed view of Messier 55 in infrared light from the VISTA telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory.
