The upside-down Little Milk Dipper of Sagittarius dominates the upper center
of the photograph, its handle sticking into the Milky Way.
Nunki is the upper right hand star of the bowl. Sagittarius' "bow"
starts at the
end of the Little Milk Dipper's handle and bends down and to the left
(from top to bottom, Kaus Borealis, Kaus Media, and Kaus Australis). The
arrow runs from the center of the bow down and to the right and points
to the center of the Galaxy (GC) in the dark clouds of the Milky Way, seen
running from upper right to lower center. X Sgr is the bright star
just above the Galactic Center.
The bow, arrow, and the Little Milk Dipper together make "the
"Teapot." The cluster M 7 in Scorpius
is seen just to the
right of bottom center; Scorpius's two star "Stinger" is at the
bottom edge. The Lagoon
Nebula, M 8, lies just to the left of
the Winter Solstice. Down and to the left
of the Little Milk Dipper curls the semi-circle of
Corona Australis, the
Southern Crown. See the wide field of
constellations around Sagittarius. At lower right is
