Wide-field and close-up views of the Tarantula Nebula
This image shows, on the left, a wide-field view of the Tarantula Nebula, a vast stellar nursery in the Large Magellanic Cloud. This was taken with the Wide Field Imager (WFI) on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the European Southern Observatory's site at La Silla, Chile. On the right is a narrower, more detailed view of part of the nebula, observed by Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys. The location of the Hubble image is marked by a square near the centre of the WFI image.
