Crux Australis

A friend of mine in the northern hemisphere says she's never seen the Southern Cross. I was the same up until a couple of years ago, there were stars I had never seen in my life when I went to the north part of the planet..... I felt out of kilter and a little lost when I looked skyward. Down here, if the stars are out I can tell which direction I'm facing and where North East, West and South is.

So I'd say she'd think the same way if she came downunder for awhile, since she's pretty knowledgeable astronomically and astrologically!

Here's a linked photo,it was shining so brightly last night. The "fingernail moon" (as I used to call it when I was a kid) was glowing nearby.
