Wide-field view of part of the Coalsack Nebula

This rich landscape is part of the small constellation of Crux (The Southern Cross). The very bright star is Alpha Crucis, also known as Acrux, one of the four stars that make up the famous cross shape. Most of the upper left part of this image is filled with dark dusty clouds that form part of the huge dark nebula called the Coalsack.
