The book has Harry looking for Orion in June at midnight ([[ArtisticLicenseAstronomy It's behind the sun in June, so you can't see it even if you wanted to]]), and also looking for Venus ([[ArtisticLicenseAstronomy which being the next planet near the sun is always close to the sun in the sky and therefore never visible at midnight]]). The students use a magical telescope which when pointed at the ground can see through anything blocking to the stars (the sun excluded) that would be there.

A great example of this is shown in WesternAnimation/WhoFramedRogerRabbit when he auditioned for the role of Judge Doom and was turned down due to fears he wouldn't be taken seriously.

[[WMG:Miriam Strout was placed under the Imperius Curse in order to remove the [[GambitRoulette element of luck]] from Bode's murder.]]
There was a risk that she might have recognized the Devil's Snare. Afterwards, she would have been kept under the curse to keep her from blabbing. Why not disappear her altogether? Because Riddle's keeping a low profile at the moment.

The jinx stays on as long as the person remains a traitor to their cause. Once they admit their guilt and/or atone for their actions, it disappears. But as illustrated by Cho’s reaction towards Harry, even after everything that happened she still seemed to think her actions were justifiable. As long as she continues to make excuses and refuse to accept responsibility for what she did, her face will remain that way. After all, she’s still a sneak.

[[WMG: Nearly Headless Nick's exclusion from the movie was a conscious effort to ShooOutTheClowns.]]
At first glance, it seems far-fetched, since Nearly Headless Nick is not a comic relief character. However, think about who portrays him. John Cleese. Because of his reputation as a comedic actor, his monologue about coming back as a ghost due to his fear of death could unfortunately lose all impact.

A great example of this is shown in [[WesternAnimation/WhoFramedRogerRabbit]] when he auditioned for the role of Judge Doom and was turned down due to fears he wouldn't be taken seriously.


* Alternately, the ''Astronomy Tower itself'' is enchanted so that people viewing the skies from its top can view the stars as they'd appear on a clear night at whichever time, season, and location has been selected by the Astronomy instructor. That way, the students' lessons can benefit them all year round, no matter where they wind up living and practicing magic in the future.

** I imagine that they ''are'' harmless to students in this regard, Umbridge managed to piss them off. I think both legends are in play here, they are intelligent and refined, but they do commit sexual violence, especially if annoyed. Read the quote above, and then compare it to what you know of sex scenes. The mussed-up hair, and fact she had obviously been on the ground (twigs and leaves), while she is "quite unscathed" and in shock with no apparent cause. Also, the complete panic after hearing hooves. [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19397_the-5-most-depraved-sex-scenes-implied-by-harry-potter.html Cracked]] essentially agrees with this one.


The jinx stays on as long as the person remains a traitor to their cause. Once they admit their guilt and/or atone for their actions, it disappears. But as seen by Cho, even after everything that happened she seemed to think her actions were justifiable. As long as she continues to make excuses and refuse to accept responsibility for what she did, her face will remain that way. After all, she’s still a sneak.
