This popular fishing spot also happens to be one of the only places in the United States from where you can see the Southern Cross constellation, as you need to be at least as far south as 25 degrees north latitude. Here in the Florida Keys, you’ll see it just lifting fully above the southern horizon. Big Pine Key hosts a Winter Star Party for those interested in looking to the sky from the southern-most state.
