The bright star cluster Messier 7 in the constellation of Scorpius

This chart shows the bright constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). Most of the stars that can be seen in a dark sky with the unaided eye are marked. The location of the bright star cluster Messier 7  is indicated with a red circle. This cluster can be easily seen with the naked eye on a dark night as a fuzzy patch in the heart of the Milky Way.
