Caption: Southern hemisphere stars. Computer artwork of the brightest stars visible in the southern hemi- sphere sky, with lines of latitude (circles) and longitude (radii). The star clouds of the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds appear as grey areas in the upper frame and at lower centre respectively. The celestial south pole (which lies over Earth's south pole) is at centre, with the celestial equator forming the outermost circle. As the Earth spins during the night, an observer would see the stars apparently moving in circles around the south pole. (See R800/153 for the northern hemisphere).
