A close-up look at the Triangulum Galaxy

This video sequence gives a detailed close-up view of the Triangulum Galaxy, also known as Messier 33. The beautiful picture of this nearby spiral, the second-closest large galaxy to our own, was captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The image is packed with bright star clusters and clouds of gas and dust. This picture is the most detailed wide-field view of this object ever taken and shows the many glowing gas clouds in the spiral arms with particular clarity.
