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

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 video switches between visible and infrared views.
