Zooming in on the star cluster NGC 3572: This zoom sequence starts with a broad panorama of the southern sky and closes in on a region of star formation centred on the cluster NGC 3572. The final detailed view was obtained using the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. It shows how the clouds of gas and dust around the cluster have been sculpted into whimsical bubbles, arcs and the odd features known as elephant trunks by the stellar winds flowing from the bright stars.

A close look at the star cluster NGC 3572 and its dramatic surroundings: The Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile has captured the best image so far of the star cluster NGC 3572, a gathering of young stars, and its spectacular surroundings. This video sequence takes a close look at how the clouds of gas and dust around the cluster have been sculpted into whimsical bubbles, arcs and the odd features known as elephant trunks by the stellar winds flowing from the bright stars. The brightest of these cluster stars are heavier than the Sun and will end their short lives as supernova explosions.Credit:ESO/G. Beccari. Music: movetwo
