This theme seems preordained in so far as the post important cross for most populations of the Suothern hemispher, from the South American Continent to Africa into South East Asia, Australasia and the Micronesian and Polynesian Island chains all have age old myths concerning the Southern Cross. In addition you poor souls in the Northern Hemisphere are not permited to see it - More than fair considering that Northern skies are populated with stars have great and fanciful names depicting the mythology of a few Johnny Come Latle cultures such as the Egyptians, Greeks, the Romans and even the Norsemen. None of them going back any further than 10,000 years.
When you consider that Aboriginal Australian Culture had been naming stars for around 40 millenium or more U find it disrepectful for the Astronomers of the world (Obviously controlled by the Northerners) haven't had the courtesy to ask Aborigine, Maori, Figian, Patagonian etc Elders what they call given Astrological phenomena, and adapt the names of purely Southern, Stars accordingly. For instance the pointer stars Centauri Apha and Beta which point to the (Northern most star) of Crux (How boring is that) the five components of which are only known as Alpha, Beta, Gamma Delta and Epsilon. Nothing fancy so you don't deserve to see them we will keep them to ourselves thank you at least until the North and South Poles their once every 30 Millenium flips, I'll bet you name them when you are forced to look at the,
