Crux constellation?

You all know what the crux constellation is right? Well you can only see it from the southern hemisphere but not the northern. Explain.

No. This has been answered many times already, and you posted it in the wrong forum. We're not here to cater to the needs of the illiterate.

If the earth was a disk, the constellation would be seen throughout the world. This doesn't happen. The Crux can only be seen from the southern hemisphere because the earth has a curvature since it is a globe. All you FE'ers are just stubborn an don't want to accept the truth.

Odd, I have seen it from Florida.

Wrong. That conclusion requires more assumptions than just the Earth being flat. Please, for your own sake, lurk moar.

Has the Crux constellation may have been seen in Florida because the constellation has been known to be seen that far up at certain times near the horizon. If the earth was a disk it would be seen as far up as the north pole. The Crux hasn't been seen that for up because of the earth's curvature. Plus you can see the earths curvature from footage and photos from the ISS and space shuttle in orbit.

So now it's the North Pole?  I, along with most of mankind, have never been there so I can't counter your new premise.

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crux
Crux is the smallest of the 88 modern constellations, but is one of the most distinctive. Its name is Latin for cross, and it is dominated by a cross-shaped asterism that is commonly known as the Southern Cross. It is easily visible from the southern hemisphere at practically any time of year, although it is also visible near the horizon from tropical latitudes of the northern hemisphere, for a few hours every night, during the spring months; for instance, from Cancun – or any other place at latitude 25º N or less, with unobstructed view to the South—at around 10 pm, at the end of April.

But people have been to and live in Canada and it has not ever been seen there. The reason it has not been seen there is because the earth has a curvature since it is a sphere. None of you have commented on my quote saying that you can see the earths curvature from footage and photos from the space shuttle and the ISS.

Any space exploration is covered by the conspiracy, don't worry. :D

Odd, I have seen it from Florida.

So the general explanation by FE for two different sets of stars is that they're placed over two different sections of the flat Earth. Why don't they look like two distinctive discs (because we have empirical evidence that they spin)? The disc only sometimes spills over into the region FL is in. Why is that?

At first your claim was that it could only be seen in the southern hemiplane.  You willingly abandoned that claim in short order.  If you're going to use the constellations in your argument, choose one that you know well.  As you're somewhat new, I offer this advice all in good candor.

OK to summarise the entire thread:
Crux can be seen from anywhere in the southern hemisphere and as far north as 25o. From anywhere in the southern hemisphere it can be seen that Crux rotates around a point in the sky centred roughly on the star Sigma Octantis. Sigma Octantis appears directly overhead from the latitude of 90oS.
There is no FE explanation for how the southern stars appear to rotate round this point, nor how that axis can appear directly overhead from opposite sides of a disc. This is one of the most crushing disproofs of FET.
