Abstract

I would like to present an overview of red supergiants (RSGs) in the Milky Way. There are only about 1400 objects listed as RSGs in the spectroscopic catalog by Skiff (2014); moreover, we are not sure yet about how they formed and where they formed. Indeed, most of them are strangely found in isolation, while extraordinary massive clusters of RSGs are observed at the near-end of the Galactic Bar. This intriguing overdensity poses some questions about the continuity of star formation in the Galactic Disk.
