Group VI
The Southern Constellations

The Southern Constellations is a large group of 32 constellations, many of them named in modern times by European scientists exploring the southern hemisphere for the first time, during the age of exploration that followed the voyages of Columbus in 1492. Although objects of great interest can be found in these skies, they are not visible from North America or Europe, and can only be viewed by traveling south of the equator. The Large Magellanic Cloud can be found in Dorado, while the Small Magellanic Cloud is located in Tucana.
