Meaning of Southern Cross

Southern Cross means: A constellation in the Southern Hemisphere that is used to aid navigation. The Southern Cross is used in place of the Polaris in the Southern Hemisphere. Five stars comprise the Southern Cross.

Meaning of Southern Cross

Southern Cross means: A constellation in the Southern Hemisphere that is used to aid navigation. The Pole Star or Polaris is not visible south of the Equator and there is not equivalent star in the Southern hemisphere marking the location of the South Pole. Thus, some other method is required to determine A true south direction. (Compass do not point to true north at all points of the Earth. They point to Magnetic North which can often be several degrees away from true north.) The Southern Cross is used in place of the Polaris in the Southern Hemisphere. Five stars comprise the Southern Cross. Four of the stars mark the outward points of the cross and the fifth is slightly off from the center. Because the stars form a Latin Cross, early European mariners said it depicted the Crucifixion of Christ; with the fifth star representing where Christ’s side was pierced with the lance. The further South you go the higher in the sky the Southern Cross becomes. The main beam of the cross points South when you follow a path from the head to the foot. Two pointer stars, off to the side of the Southern Cross (Alpha and Beat Centauri) are helpful aids in not only locating the Southern Cross but in determining the approximate location of the South Pole. Split the difference between the two pointer stars and then draw an imaginary perpendicular line from these two stars. Follow this line to a spot where it crosses the other imaginary line that is follows the main beam of the Southern Cross. The South Pole is located under the spot where the lines bisect.
