Zoom of Cas A

This zoom-in video shows the relative location of supernova remnant Cassiopeia A (Cas A) on the sky. It begins with a ground-based photo by the late astrophotographer Akira Fujii. As it zooms into smaller portions of the sky, it fades into an image from the Digital Sky Survey. It ends by crossfading into an image of Cas A from NIRCam (Near-Infrared Camera) on the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope, with added borders from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image.
