While I'm at the Southern Hemisphere, is there anything I should be looking for in the sky constellation-wise? It's either cloudy or the lights are so bright I can't see many stars. I see a set of three to the South, but not much else I can ID.

Does anyone have a preferred link to a good Southern constellation map? The ones I find down here are not very good (and are in Spanish since all the search engines switch based on my IP address).
