The major portion of Centaurus (the Centaur)
sprawls across the picture, Menkent (Theta Centauri) toward
the upper left. This northern
part of Centaurus is tied to the southern
portion through Epsilon Centauri, which lies toward lower right.
The bright fuzzy image to the right of center is the great globular
star cluster Omega Centauri. Lupus is
down and to the left, the bright star there Kakkab, Alpha Lupi.
