The galactic bulge in Scorpius and Sagittarius (left), the Southern Cross and bright stars Alpha and Beta Centauri at the horizon (right) rise over the coast of the Pacific Ocean, as seen from Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, Mexico. From this low-northern latitude of about 23 degrees these prominent icons of the southern sky rise a few degrees above the southern horizon. The dazzling light over the ocean on the left is planet Venus rising just before dawn. Click on the second photo to see another photo of these scene.
