"Hey, look! It's phoenix constellation over there!"

Okay .. so which part of the northern sky will we find this intriging constellation? Very nicely done!

hey GInger, here's to answer your question (i got it from wiki, of course!):

Phoenix is a minor southern constellation. It is easily visible from locations such as Australia and South Africa during Southern Hemisphere summer.

so anyone in northern hemisphere, fat chance for you to see it..

Hai Ella... First of all: Happy New Year!!

Illonya cantik banget.. Warna & tone-nya mantap. Komposisinya juga oke. Tambah gape aja nih si 'neng.. hehehe..

Phoenix ya.. Jadi inget tokoh Iki "Phoenix" yg anime di Saint Seiya. Si Iki itu ceritanya pendekar yg dinaungi oleh konstelasi Phoenix. (phew.. ternyata ada gunanya juga nonton anime. hihihi :D)
