Bootes, the Herdsman, rises, its kite-shaped figure stretching up and to the left of the bright orange star Arcturus. A view shifted to the north shows Alkalurops. The stars of extreme northwest Bootes (including Theta and Lambda) lie near the end of the tail of Ursa Major. The western curve of Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown, appears at the bottom left. Bootes has a star with an orbiting planet.
