Immerse yourself in a visual experience like no other as NASA’s space telescopes sweep you through the splendid Orion Nebula.

We’re used to seeing spectacular Hubble Space Telescope images of ethereal nebulae.

Now we have the chance to fly through the heart of one of the Milky Way’s most scenic creations, the Orion Nebula.

A Hubble video released Thursday takes a dramatic 3D dive through the nebula’s glowing array of gas and dust.

The visualization below comes from NASA’s Universe of Learning program, which provides educational resources to students and others interested in the space agency’s astrophysics research.

The team combined observations from both Hubble and the Spitzer Space Telescope to create the experience of floating through the nebula.

The video switches between visible and infrared views.
