The star formation regions NGC 6334 and NGC 6357 in the constellation of Scorpius

This chart of the bright constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion) shows the stars visible to the unaided eye on a clear and dark night. It covers a rich part of the sky that is host to many star clusters, glowing clouds of gas and dark dust clouds. Two star formation regions, NGC 6334 (the Cat’s Paw Nebula) and NGC 6357 (the Lobster Nebula) are marked with red circles. Although these clouds appear spectacular in pictures they are very faint and hard to see visually, even with a large telescope.
