Tonight is the best time to see the navigational constellation Hanaiakamalama, also known as the Southern Cross. The Southern Cross has guided voyagers from ancient times to the Hawaiian Islands on their journeys from Tahiti. Enjoy this video in which navigator Nainoa Thompson talks about studying the stars and learning to find the Southern Cross. You can start to see the Southern Cross from nautical twilight at about 8 p.m. this evening. It will be upright off South Point, Hawaiʻi Island at 8:35 p.m., off Maunalua Bay on Oʻahu’s south shore at 8:43 p.m. and off Nawiliwili, Kauai at 8:50 p.m.
