Star Viewer map

I've added a new video to the Star Viewer map. The video is the latest from the always excellent Hubblecast series and shows a spectacular view of M66.

M66 is the largest player of the Leo Triplet, and a galaxy with an unusual anatomy: it displays asymmetric spiral arms and an apparently displaced core. The peculiar anatomy is most likely caused by the gravitational pull of the other two members of the trio.
