One good thing about being snowed in, I've had the chance to explore this site more thoroughly, it is impressive. I have always tried to find the Southern Cross, never knew for sure if I had or not. The San Pedro Sun had an article detailing exactly where in the night sky to look. The whole article was interesting, but here is the best part:
"To find the Southern Cross you step out on the beach or a pier (the farther away from lights the better the view). More or less you look towards Victoria House or Belize City and then a bit up from the horizon. Let your eyes rest on the brightest star "Conapus", keep your eyes there. Look towards the left and up a bit. There you will see, among others, four stars forming a big cross tilting a bit left. This is called the "False Cross". Keeping your eyes steadily there look again to your left a bit more and down a bit towards the horizon. There will be two bright stars flanked on either side with two fainter ones forming a smaller cross. This is the famous Southern Cross."
