"Sifting through Dust near Orion’s Belt (zoom)"
"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."
