Zooming in on The Fried Egg Nebula

This zoom video sequence starts with the spectacular view of the central parts of the Milky Way. As we close in on the constellation of Scorpius, one of the richest parts of the sky, many clusters and nebula appear. The final sequence closes in on an apparently unremarkable star, IRAS 17163-3907, which has been found by recent VLT observations to be a rare yellow hypergiant star, surrounded by two shells.
