Caption: Scutum star cloud. This is a bright patch of the Milky Way in the faint constellation Scutum. The region is best seen in the summer in the northern hemisphere. The Milky Way is our galaxy seen from within, which makes it appear as a band of light crossing the sky. In places, dark clouds of dust block the light from the stars behind. The notable star cluster M11 (also known as the Wild Duck) can be seen in the centre of the star cloud.
