Caption: Starfield centred on the constellation of Ophiuchus with the planet Jupiter seen as the brightest object at lower centre. Ophiuchus is a large constellation not easily identifiable in the sky due to the lack of stars brighter than the second magnitude. Part of the constellation of Scorpius is seen underneath Jupiter; Antares (alpha Scorpii bottom centre), a red giant star, is the brightest star in Scorpius. A dense region of the Milky Way occupies the bottom left corner of the frame.
