"The Scorpion"

The central bulge of The Milky Way in the constellations of Sagittarius and Scorpius.

It's back! Here in Australia I am lucky enough to be able to photograph this section of the sky for about ten months each year. It begins to emerge in the east in late January, and it sets in the west just after dark in November. Tried a few things different here. I would love to know what you think of it.

5 image panorama.

I am a Scorpio and I wish it was possible to see this from the northern hemisphere. You're lucky indeed=) Nice photo!

Thank you so much :D Depending on location you may just be able to see this constellation skimming the southern horizon in your Summer.

You're welcome! And well, I live in a hilly region which is situated on the 69th parallel north, so even in summer I probably wouldn't be able to see this constellation. But maybe I would travel southwards:) (Smile)
