Alt vs local Time graph.

    Hi, I need some help with interpreting an altitude vs local time graph.

    Here is a link to the graph and some of the questions that were asked about the graph.

    also this information was provided: Date of observation: christmas night 2015, Southern hemisphere, ignore daylight savings.

    For the RA of objects I got the order as 2,1,moon,3=4,5 (just listed them according to max alt time)

    For Declination I have them ordered as 3,moon,1,4,5,2 ( lowest alt first unless they appear as circumpolar)

    The stars Declination I got by using moon as reference and I got the moons Declination roughly 18°N late during late December, hence star 1 is at 0°, star 4 at 32°S which is observation site and star 5 at 64°S

    Any one able to tell me if I have the right results or how I should go about reading this graph? I am not sure as to why some most are curved shape and one with a straight line (star 4)
