Lagoon Nebula (Narrated Zoom)

About this video
Duration: 30 seconds

We begin our journey with a view of the night sky, looking in the direction of our galaxy's central bulge.

We zoom into the star clouds and dark dust lanes of the Milky Way.

The pink object ahead of us is the Lagoon Nebula, the birthplace of stars.

As we get closer, we see a glowing young star illuminating clouds of gas and dust.
