Hercules is framed by
a string of three stars that run from lower left to upper right just
above center together with three more below. The 4-star "Keystone"
is to the lower left. From the left-hand star clockwise, its stars
are Eta, Zeta, Epsilon, and Pi. The famed globular cluster
Messier 13 glows
just to the upper right of the upper left hand star of the Keystone.
Rasalgethi (Alpha), "the Kneeler's Head," is the reddish star near the
upper right edge. Kornephoros (Beta), the brightest star
in the constellation, is at top right center, while Delta is
immediately to the right of center.
Rho is just below Pi. 30 Her is the fainter of the
two stars at the left edge, 68 Her the upper left of the
two up and to the right of Pi. Mu is toward bottom right, with
Masym (Lambda) between it and Delta; 89 Her
is down and to the right of Mu; 95 Her is the brightest star of
the box of four near the lower right corner. More of the classic constellation
can be seen in the view shifted to the west.
