Zooming in on the dark and dusty Coalsack Nebula

This zoom video starts with a broad view of the Milky Way. We then zoom in towards the famous small constellation of Crux, the Southern Cross, and to its left, the huge dark area called the Coalsack. The final sequence takes a very close look at some of the darkest parts of this cloud and also reveals many faint stars whose light has been reddened by scattering from the dust.
