I think you have to be below the equator to see it. I know, Rats! I want to see it too --someday.

Absolutely you can see the Southern Cross constellation as long as you are south of Key West this summer. For those of you who don't know the southern cross can never be seen from the United States except Key West and maybe Texas. It's called the Southern Cross because it can only be seen from or near the southern hemisphere. Just look due south just over the horizon around 11pm any night from now into the fall. The SC is made up of 4 stars. There are 2 stars to the left of the SC that point toward it.

Its an awesome sight. I saw it every night while in Australia. The best times was on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Crystal clear!
