**NZ Impression-南十字星

只有南半球才看得到的南十字星,到了南半球的紐西蘭當然要看看了~往南邊的天空看,會看到兩顆比較亮的星星,距離不會很遠,連成一條直線,而一旁就有四顆星星成一個四方形,其中三顆比較亮,另一個的亮度暗了一點,但是那四顆星就是所謂的南十字星~就像北半球的北斗七星一樣,但是感覺北極星的亮度亮多了,真的在夜間迷路要辨識方向的話,應該還是北半球的人比較幸福,因為比較簡單~~:)

(Constellations: the Southern Cross)

If you come to the Southern Hemisphere, you have to see the Southern Cross, because you can't see this in the Northern Hemisphere. It's very easy to find the Southern Cross. On a clear night, facing south, locate two very bright stars. It's they are called the pointers, because they point to the Southern Cross. Following the pointers, you can see four bright stars and one dim one making up a rhombus. These are the Southern Cross.

At first, I thought that they must be as bright as Polaris. Actually, the Southern Cross are not so bright, but it's still very easy to find them, so people can depend on the stars to find their directions.

Teacher's Comment: Thank you. This is really interesting and I'm proud of you for taking an interest in broader education.
