Zooming in on the Lagoon Nebula

This video begins with a ground-based view of the night sky, before zooming in on a NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope view of the Lagoon Nebula.

This nebula is filled with intense winds from hot stars, churning funnels of gas, and energetic star formation, all embedded within an intricate haze of gas and pitch-dark dust.
