Antares and the Rho Ophiuchus Cloud Complex
As spring moves into New England, so do fabulous views of the bright Milky Way. One morning while waiting for Nova Sagittarius 2015 to rise, I noticed Antares hanging just perfectly in the southern starscape and couldn't pass up the change to capture this shot. I snapped this at Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA.
