I'd like to see the Southern Cross.
(In Japan, We can't see that. )
Can you see the Polestar and the Great Bear?

Beautiful picture. Thank you!

Thank you Tommy, I am happy my photos can make people happy. I am in no way a great photographer but I am learning.

I am not knowledable on stars so I don't know about the great bear, Just know the southern cross.

I was once told a story by a farmer saying if you draw a line from the two bright stars (pointer stars)above the southern cross then a line from the left to right stars of the cross there these lines cross is south.

Trying to find something on the net to see if this is true. But doing it with this picture it would be right

Found it
[scienceworks.museum.vic.gov.au]

Page 6 explains it.

South would be roughly where you can see the lights of the plane

Thank you!
Now I'll try to read that URL.

I can see that plane's lights now.
At first, I thought what is that.

Thank you again.
