Scorpio “the Scorpion”
The stars of Scorpio have been studied for centuries. Connecting the bright lights in this summertime constellation reveals the stinging tail of the scorpion that was said to have killed Orion the Hunter.
The supergiant, Antares glows brightly near the “heart” of the scorpion. At 550 light years away, Antares is 400 times larger and an unbelievable 57,000 times more luminous than the earth’s sun.
