Caption

Scorpius constellation. Constellation of Scorpius, the scorpion, seen over light pollution from a city. Scorpius' "head" is at far right. The brightest star at centre right is Antares, the red "heart" of the scorpion. The curving "tail" is represented by the bright stars stretching from centre left to upper left. Scorpius is most easily observed during the summer in the northern hemisphere. Light pollution from cities is a major problem for astronomers as it drowns out dim stars. Photographed over Tucson in Arizona, USA.
