Zooming in on the star-forming region NGC 3582

This sequence starts with a wide-field view of the most spectacular parts of the southern Milky Way. As we zoom in we see the Southern Cross (Crux) and the famous Eta Carinae nebula. A little later we close in on the star-forming region NGC 3582, lying about 10 000 light-years from us in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). The final detailed view shows a new image of NGC 3582 and its surroundings from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile.
