Caption

Southern Milky Way, The Emu. This view ranges from the bright galactic bulge in Sagittarius and Scorpius at left, to Centaurus and Crux (the Southern Cross) at right. The bright red-orange star Antares (the Scorpion's heart) is at upper left. Alpha and Beta Centauri, the two brightest stars of Centaurus are at upper right. The Coalsack Nebula (a dark nebula) is near the Southern Cross at top right. This area of the Milky Way has a distinctive shape that has been described in Australian Aboriginal astronomy as 'The Emu'. The head of the emu is the Coalsack with the Southern Cross directly above. For this image without the outline, see image C028/4349.
