Zoom on M 106

Loading player...

This video zooms in on nearby spiral galaxy Messier 106. The sequence begins with a view of the night sky centred on M 106, with the constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear) visible. It then zooms through observations from the Digitized Sky Survey 2, and ends with an image that combines data from Hubble with amateur observations by astrophotographers Robert Gendler and Jay GaBany. Gendler combined these images with high resolution Hubble data to produce this stunning image.
