Zooming in on the cometary globule CG4

This zoom video sequence goes from a wide view of the southern Milky Way deep into the constellation of Puppis close to the site of the Vela supernova remnant. The final view shows a new close-up view of the cometary globule CG4. It glows menacingly, like the gaping mouth of a gigantic celestial creature, in this this new image from ESO’s Very Large Telescope. What looks huge and bright in this image is actually a faint nebula and not easy to observe The exact nature of CG4 remains a mystery.
