Zoom into the Triangulum Galaxy - Long Version

About this video
Duration: 2 minutes, 40 seconds

Fly across the local galactic neighborhood to the Triangulum galaxy (M33), a smaller spiral than our Milky Way galaxy. Zoom in first on one of M33's bright regions of star birth, nebula NGC 604, glowing with hot ionized hydrogen gas. The remarkable ability of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to resolve millions of individual stars is on display in this pan across M33's dense star field.
