    This video starts with a wide field view of the spectacular southern part of the Milky Way. We close in gradually on a small bubble of glowing gas in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). This is the planetary nebula Fleming 1, glowing gas shells and symmetrical jets around an aging pair of stars. The final detailed view comes from the FORS2 instrument on the Very Large Telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.Credit: ESO/Digitized Sky Survey 2/Nick Risinger (skysurvey.org). - A close-up view of the planetary nebula Fleming 1 seen with ESO's Very Large Telescope: This pan video shows a close-up of a new ESO Very Large Telescope image of the planetary nebula Fleming 1 in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). This striking object is a glowing cloud of gas around a dying star. New observations have shown that it is likely that a very rare pair of white dwarf stars lies at the heart of this object, a fact that can fully explain the remarkably symmetric structures of the jets in the surrounding gas clouds.Credit: ESO/H. Boffin. - Artist's view of how a planetary nebula's wobbling jets are sculte:This animation shows how the two stars at the heart of a planetary nebula like Fleming 1 can control the creation of the spectacular jets of material ejected from the object.Credit:ESO/L.
