Constellations the Southern Cross and Centaurus are photographed above the Birdman stone and Motu Nui islet in the Easter Island in the Middle of the Pacific Ocean, about 4000 km away from the coasts of South America. Orongo is a stone village and ceremonial center at the edge of Rano Kau. Orongo, inside the World Heritage Rapa Nui (Easter Island) NationalPark, is made of 53 stone masonry houses and enjoys a dramatic location on the crater lip of Rano Kau at the point where a 250 meter sea cliff converges with the inner wall of the crater of Rano Kau.
