Zooming in on a stellar nursery in Monoceros

In this zoom sequence we start with a broad panorama of the Milky Way, including the familiar constellation of Orion. As we close in on part of the adjacent constellation of Monoceros we start to see faint clouds and in the final part of the video the full glory of the Monoceros R2 star-forming region is revealed in a new image from the VISTA infrared telescope.
