Solving the Starfield scorpion’s sting puzzle

On the floor at the foot of the monument is a large disc that shows a set of stars with a line running through all of them. The stars and line roughly resemble the scorpions on Hyla II – a stick figure version. You can get a big clue from looking at the scorpion’s loitering near the monument. 

The idea here is to use the glyph to guide the beam of light coming from the top of the monument to the scorpion’s sting on the constellation. The exact point is to the left and on the dot where the line ends. Check the image above for the exact spot.

You can control the light with the glyph. It features four rings, each denoting a direction. Interact with the top one and you’ll move the light up. Interact with the right hand one and you’ll move the light beam right, and so on. Guide the light beam to the sting to continue the quest and unlock a set of coordinates on the last star of the Scorpius constellation – Oborum Prime.
