Serpentarius is an old name for the constellations Serpens and Ophiuchus. It literally translates to 'the serpent-holder' and relates to old Greek mythology, which is something I briefly studied in high school. Relevantly, this was taken in a class session for Photography and turned out much better than I thought it would. Conditions were awful in the classroom for capturing images, and props were scarce. The figure in the image is a classmate of mine.

I apologise to those with no interest in space and related topics, as it seems to be a dominant theme for my recent work.
