The Milky Way in Scorpius and Sagittarius, just above my horizon.  The tail of Scorpius is on the lower right.  We are looking in the direction of the centre of our own galaxy.  This region is rich with bright nebulae, among them the Lagoon (visible as a patch just above the brightest part of the Milky Way) , Trifid and Omega.
