Zooming in on the globular cluster Omega Centauri

In this sequence we start with a wide view of the southern Milky Way. We then gradually zoom in on what initially appears to be a bright fuzzy star, the giant globular star cluster Omega Centauri. As we get close the cluster resolves into a ball of vast numbers of faint stars. The final image shows a very detailed new view of the cluster from the new VLT Survey Telescope (VST).
