16). Best seen 9 pm July (May–September) The positions of the constellations are distorted in order to understand the pathways better. To locate Peacock in Pavo It is important to recognize the star Peacock in the constellation of Pavo. It serves as a good reference point, as a corner of a triangle that will later make it easy to locate the constellations of Grus, Tucana and Indus. ✶ A line from Hadar (Star 2) of Centaurus through Star 1 of Triangulum Australe goes directly to Peacock. ✶ A line from Star 3 of Triangulum Australe through Star 1 of the triangle leads to the Peacock area.

They are companion galaxies to our own galaxy and appear as fuzzy patches. ✶ If you flip the triangle of Hydrus over, Star 1 of Hydrus, which is closest to Achernar, will lay near the South Celestial Pole. ✶ Star 2 through Star 3 of Hydrus leads to the LMC. The line joining Stars 1 and 2 of Hydrus crosses the SMC. ✶ Star 2 of Hydrus is 13 degrees from the South Celestial Pole. 39 A walk through the heavens Fig. 24 – Facing North and looking high up - January 10 pm Sirius 6 7° 7 Saiph Rigel 8 4 5 Mintaka 3 Alnitak Alnilam 20° Procyon Bellatrix Betelgeuse 2 1 40 A walk through the heavens Starting from Orion (Fig.
