Zoom shot to Orion Nebula M42

Typical sci-fi shot of moving astronomical images. Utterly improbable given that even at the speed of light you couldn’t see this sort of movement. Warp drives and wormholes are pure sci-fi.

This is a real-life shot of the Orion Nebula M42. The movement is merely from using the zoom feature of a conventional digital movie camera on ‘night shot’ setting.  Useful technique for sci-fi or merely to highlight areas of sky.
