Zoom into SWEEPS Image
About this video
Duration: 1 minute, 9 seconds

Zoom into the Sagittarius area of the nighttime sky, where Hubble looked into our Milky Way galaxy for extrasolar planets. The camera then zooms all the way into our galaxy's central bulge, where the view dissolves into an artist's interpretation of one of the orbiting planet candidates.
