Zooming in on the newly discovered globular star cluster VVV CL001


This sequence starts with a wide-field view of the spectacular central parts of the southern Milky Way. As we zoom in we can see many famous objects, including the Lagoon Nebula. In the final sequence we dive deep into the dusty regions and reveal two almost hidden globular clusters, UKS 1 and the newly discovered VVV CL001 in a new image from the VISTA telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile.
