Northern hemisphere

Southern hemisphere

The first shot was taken in Colorado and the second in Brazil. I didn't expect the almost 90 degree rotation. I guess that proves the earth is a globe?

    There are those who would disagree, Cristóbal.

    Interesting. I knew that you see different constellations in the southern hemisphere but it never occurred to me that the moon would look different. Obviously it does.

    I had to research it and yes, if you are very far South you will see it completely inverted. I had no idea...
