Video: Dazzling journey through the Flame Nebula. This one-minute journey takes us down to the center of the Flame Nebula, into dense clouds of gas and dust. Video from the VISTA telescope shows the dramatic clouds of gas and dust around the constellation Flame. In visible light, the heart of this object is hidden behind a thick cloud of dust. But the infrared image taken by VISTA was able to penetrate the darkness and reveal the cluster of hot, young stars hiding there.
