This zoom video sequence starts with a wide view of the large but faint constellation of Eridanus (The River), not far from the more familiar form of Orion (The Hunter). As we zoom in we see a small patch of light that proves to be an attractive spiral galaxy named NGC 1187. The detailed final view shows a new VLT image of this object.
