Magnificent arc shows the Way. As the skies get dark this month you will notice that the constellations scattered along the arc of the Milky Way come into view. Crux, also known as the Southern Cross, and Centaurus, with the bright stars Rigil Kentaurus and Hadar – or Alpha Centauri and Beta Centauri – are on show. In the southeast, do not miss the bright star Antares in Scorpius. On the opposite side of the sky you will see Canopus in Carina.

Given this, there’s no shock when you hear that every year hundreds of millions of people around the world in more than 7000 cities across more than 180 countries take part in this remarkable conservation movement.
