Being from the northern hemisphere, I don’t get to see the stars from the southern half of Earth very often.  So, as a lover of the night sky, regardless of location, I reveled in discovering some of the ones showing themselves in South Africa.  Taken from just outside one of the huts we were staying in at the white lion preserve in the Timbavati region of NE South Africa, the southern cross shows itself to the left of the tip of the hut.  The 2 bright stars just above the cross are Alpha & Beta Centauri, known as the pointers.
