This zoom sequence opens with a wide-field view of the Milky Way. We close in on the constellation of Orion and as we zoom in on to a region close to Orion's famous Belt, a fascinating region of dust and reflection nebulosity — known as Messier 78 — comes into view. At the end of the zoom, submillimetre-wavelength observations from the LABOCA camera on APEX reveal the heat glow of the dust grains, shown here in orange tones.
