**NZ Impression-南十字星

(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.
