Zooming in to the Kinman Dwarf galaxy

This video starts by showing a wide-field view of a region of the sky in the constellation of Aquarius. It then zooms in to show the Kinman Dwarf galaxy, where a mysterious luminous blue variable star disappeared. The end of the video shows an artistic animation of what the star could have looked like before it disappeared.
