              This zoom video starts from a broad view of the Milky Way and takes the viewer on a journey to the bright star cluster NGC 3293 in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). This spectacular object would have been just a cloud of gas and dust about ten million years ago, but as stars began to form it became the bright group we see here. Clusters like this are celestial laboratories that allow astronomers to learn more about how stars evolve.

                This pan video gives a close-up view of a colourful image from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. It shows a group of young stars huddled together against a backdrop of clouds of glowing gas and lanes of dust. This star cluster, known as NGC 3293, would have been just a cloud of gas and dust itself about ten million years ago, but as stars began to form it became the bright group we see here.

                    In this video we fly through the young star cluster Westerlund 1 and close in on the strange magnetar that lies within it. This remarkable cluster contains hundreds of very massive stars, some shining with a brilliance of almost one million suns. European astronomers have for the first time demonstrated that the magnetar — an unusual type of neutron star with an extremely strong magnetic field — was formed from a star with at least 40 times as much mass as the Sun.

                      This zoom video starts with a view of the spectacular southern Milky Way and gradually closes in on a rich region of the sky in the constellation of Carina (The Keel). The colourful final image comes from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile and shows the star cluster NGC 3590. These stars shine brightly in front of a dramatic landscape of dark patches of dust and richly hued clouds of glowing gas. This small stellar gathering gives astronomers clues about how these stars form and evolve — as well as giving hints about the structure of our galaxy's pinwheeling arms.
