Zoom into NGC 1073

Loading player...

This video zooms from an image of constellation of Cetus (the Sea Monster) into a closeup of the galaxy NGC 1073, imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is thought to have a similar barred spiral shape, and the study of galaxies such as NGC 1073 can help astronomers learn more about our celestial home.
