Lyra, with bright Vega, is centered in the picture, its distinctive
parallogram dropping down and to the left.
Cygnus runs across the
bottom, Delta Cygni to the left, Albireo (Beta Cyg) to the right.
Draco lies to the upper left
corner with two of its brighter stars,
Rastaban (Beta Dra) near the corner, Eltanin (Gamma Dra) down and
to the right of it. The stars of eastern
Hercules wrap around above
and to the right of Lyra. The western edge of the Milky Way
runs through the lower part of the picture, grazing Lyra.
The "Apex of the Sun's Way," the direction in which the Sun is moving
among the local stars, lies toward the upper right corner among
the stars of southeastern Hercules near the border with Lyra.
The apex is surrounded by a box toward the upper right that (clockwise from upper
left) is made of Nu, Xi, Omicron, and 99 Herculis..
