About this image

A view of the southern sky from a rural setting in SW France. Jupiter and Saturn are rising in the SE and Scorpius is very prominent slightly west of the meridian. It is easily possible to follow down to the sting in the Scorpion's tail, unlike at home where Shaula only just clears the horizon.
