Zooming and panning on barred spiral galaxy Messier 83
Beginning with a wide view, this video zooms in through ground-based imagery to the Hubble and Magellan composite image of Messier 83, ending on Hubble's view. Messier 83 is a barred spiral galaxy that has hosted a remarkable number of supernova explosions, and appears to have a double nucleus at its core.Credit:
