Video: Zoom Inside the Heart of the Trifid Nebula

Running Time: 29 seconds

The video zooms into the Hubble Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 image of the heart of the Trifid Nebula. The zoom starts by looking at the Sagittarius constellation in the night sky and dissolves into the Lagoon Nebula. The video then goes deeper into the sky to show the Trifid Nebula, with the star birth region appearing as the final spectacular image.
