Assembly Line

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows Messier 17 in the constellation of Sagittarius. Coming nicely into view for us this time of the year, Sagittarius (and neighboring Scorpius) are wonderful areas to explore with binoculars. You won't see detail like this, but you'll stumble across nebula and clusters by the bucket and serendipitous discovery is half the fun~
