Phoenix Phoenix is 450º located in the South hemisphere that crosses the austral parallel of 50º observing in the South hemisphere from the months of Julio to January culminating in the zenith. However, to be seen in the North hemisphere it is visible solely during the months of October and November reaching its highest altitude to a few degrees over the horizon. In the middle of November above field, Phoenix culminates at about 9:30 pm local time. The declination of this constellation ranges from -58 to -40 degrees. The phoenix is a mythical bird that lives on aromatic herbs, such as cinnamon, frankincense, and myrrh, and builds its nest on top of palm trees. It lives for 500 to 600 years. The phoenix then sets the nest and self afire and dies to vapor. However, it is reborn.
