A twilight view of the southern sky looking over the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Scorpius is to the right and Sagittarius to the left. Shaula (Lambda Scorpii) is just visible above the horizon in the centre of the image. The sting in the Scorpion's tail rises to about 2 degrees from the south coast of England and is the southernmost bright star visible from the UK.
