Saturn, Trifid and Lagoon

 

Saturn, M8, M20

 

In early September 2018, the planet Saturn (the bright, multifaceted "star" left of the image's center) was at the western end of its opposition loop located nearby the colorful Trifid Nebula (at the center) and Lagoon Nebula (below). The image also shows a huge number of stars, clusters, bright and dark nebulae, as this image is pointed just a little bit north of the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
