The constellation of Scorpius appears to guard the ‘upper’ wall of the Milky Way Galactic Core. At the heart of Scorpius is the bright iconic star Antares which is the source of the orangish emission nebula in the Rho Ophiuchi Cloud Complex. This image demonstrates the galactic ‘river’ that bridges this beautiful nebula with the Galactic Core.
