The Lupus 3 dark cloud in the constellation of Scorpius

This chart shows the location of the dark cloud Lupus 3 in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions, and the location of the cloud and newly formed hot young stars is marked with a red circle. The brightest two stars in this object can easily be seen with a small telescope or binoculars and form an attractive double star. The dark cloud itself only shows up in longer exposure images.
