Pan across the galactic centre

This video zooms across a part of the sky close to the centre of our Milky Way, which was observed with the VISTA infrared survey telescope. Within this part of the sky astronomers discovered a dozen new variable stars. Their discovery suggests that the bulging centre of the Milky Way likely grew through the merging of primordial star clusters.
