    Default Name That Constellation



    I'm trying to figure out what constellation is depicted in this image. The only information I have aside from the image is that the yellow dot is a planet (not sure which) and that this is most likely how the constellation/planet appears in October-ish of 2018.

    I assume the size of the stars is roughly representative of their distance.

    I know. It's not much to go on. Hence needing help. Any astronomy wizzes have an educated guess on this?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Without knowing which planet is depicted, or anything close to the actual date, or having any idea of the scale of this image (i.e. do the dots represent only the brightest stars in a large portion of a constellation or a “zoomed-in” view of a very tiny portion of a constellation), or even the orientation of the image, I don’t see any way of identifying this bit of sky. Where did you get this image?
