Not only that but the Southern Cross is their equivalent of the North Star since it's almost right above the South Pole. The Pleiades are in the Northern Sky with a declination of +24 degrees, which puts it above 24 degrees north latitude. The sun doesn't get past 23 degrees north in the summer. So there is quite a distance between them.
