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.
