Across the Equator

Fast forward several years and I found myself on a plane taking me on my first trip to the southern hemisphere. It was late evening when we crossed the equator and the stars made their first appearance in the sky. ‘What would the night sky be like?’ I wondered. Wouldn’t it be strange to not have the familiar sight of the pole star (polaris)?’ What would it be like to get my first glimpse of the southern cross – the constellation that played a huge role in the Inca mythology and beliefs?
