Zooming in on the star cluster Messier 18

This sequence takes the viewer from a wide view of the Milky Way deep into the central regions, where many bright star forming regions and star clusters can be seen. The final view is a close-up of the sky around the bright star cluster Messier 18 taken with the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory.
