Zooming in on the VISTA view of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8)

This zoom sequence starts with a wide view of the spectacular central regions of the Milky Way. As we zoom in the prominent red patch of the Lagoon Nebula becomes apparent. First we see a detailed visible-light view from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla in Chile and then finally the new infrared view from the VISTA telescope at Paranal.
