Scorpius and Sagittarius are two of the highlights of summer's evening skies. This view is a couple of hours after sunset on June 25, or a few minutes earlier on succeeding nights. A couple of prominent star clusters lurk near the scorpion's "stinger," and the glow of the Milky Way rises above the constellations. The center of the Milky Way Galaxy is in the "steam" above the spout of the teapot.
