Which hemisphere are you in?

I’ll add this one to one of the millions of ways humans were able to see that the Earth is round and how big it is: The moon is up-side down on the other hemisphere.

“From our perspective, the Moon and the night sky is actually rotated 180 degrees compared to our Northern Hemispherical friends,” Jake Clark, an astronomer from the University of Southern Queensland in Australia, explained to ScienceAlert.

“In the south we see the Moon’s dark ‘Oceanus Procellarum’ sea in the south-east corner compared to in the north-west corner for a northern observer.”
