This 3D animation explores the 30th anniversary image of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in impressive detail. The portrait features the giant nebula NGC 2014 and its neighbour NGC 2020 which together form part of a vast star-forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, approximately 163 000 light-years away.
