Add a one-line explanation of what this file represents


English: This chart shows the large southern constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur) and shows most of the stars visible with the naked eye on a clear dark night. The location of the closest star to the Solar System, Proxima Centauri, is marked with a red circle. Proxima is too faint to see with the unaided eye but can be found using a small telescope.
Español: Este gráfico muestra la gran constelación meridional de Centaurus (el Centauro) y pueden verse la mayor parte de las estrellas visibles a ojo en una noche despejada. La ubicación de la estrella más cercana al Sistema Solar, Próxima Centauri, está marcada con un círculo rojo. Próxima es demasiado débil para poder verla a simple vista, pero puede verse con un pequeño telescopio.
Deutsch: Die Karte zeigt mittig das Sternbild Zentaur (Centaurus) am Südsternhimmel. Der Rote Kreis zeigt die Position von Proxima Centauri. Während die meisten Sterne in der Karte bei guten Sichtverhältnissen mit bloßem Auge gesehen werden können, benötigt man für Proxima Centauri ein Teleskop.
