    The title prompts me to remember this:

    “Under what circumstances is the Large Magellanic Cloud visible at the zenith?”

        If one confines oneself to Earth, then,

    1. Near the Antarctic Circle; AND

    2. Because the LMC almost touches the South Ecliptic Pole, then,

        a.  During a total solar eclipse, OR

        b.  Using a radio telescope, or similar.
