Optical image of the Scorpius constellation

Scorpius. Optical image of the constellation of Scorpius (the Scorpion) backdropped against the star clouds of the Milky Way. The mythological "tail" of Scorpius begins at the two bright, close stars at lower centre. The tail curves around to the area known as the Table of Scorpius (lower left). The Table contains a white star cluster and a red cloud of interstellar gas (nebula). The "body" stretches from the Table to Antares (upper right), the brightest star in Scorpius and the "heart" of the Scorpion. Several bright stars above Antares form the "head" of the Scorpion. The constellation once also had "claws", but these now form part of the constellation of Libra
