Hubble’s View of NGC 3324

Posted by jofr

This NASA image from the Hubble Space Telescope of NGC 3324 is marvelous, isn’t it? It shows a part of the star-forming region NGC 3324, where the gas and dust clouds are displayed in intricate detail, as explained here

In the following YouTube video the camera zooms into exactly this star-forming region. What appears to be huge is in fact only a small, tiny spot. Hubble shows us how vast the universe really is! Watching this video one starts to realize that it is only a small part of a huge object far away in space.
