Zoom into N103B

This video starts with a wide-field view of the night sky, as seen from the ground, displaying the Large and the Small Magellanic Clouds. It zooms in on the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, and onto the star cluster NGC 1850. Just next to the bright cluster Hubble observed the supernova remnant N103B. In the remnant of this supernova astronomers hope to find the surviving star of a supernova explosion.
