Sagitta is a small northern sky constellation. In greek mythology the constellation was associated with an arrow. One of the stories connects it to Hercules and Aquila. It is easiest to view in the autumn evenings. Although the constellation is small it is a host for a globular cluster, M71, which can be seen in the image as a faint spot.
