Zooming in on R Aquarii

This zoom video starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and ends with a close-up look at the chaotic and fascinating binary star system R Aquarii.

The image shown in this final image of this video is data from the SPHERE/ZIMPOL instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), and shows the binary star itself, as well as the jets of material spewing from the interacting stellar couple.
