    The constellation Orion taken from each hemisphere, since one of them is an inverted version of the other.
    I guess the simple concept would be *Seasons*?
    (Provided they were taken around the same time)
    Where the left pic is the southern and the right is the northern hemisphere.


  6. Scattering of light? Less light scattered at higher altitudes, and sky appears black.


  7. No, wait. Orion constellation?

    The sky appears ‘upside down’ in the southern hemisphere, as evidenced by Orion’s sword hanging upwards in the left half of above pic.

    the belt of orion

    Circumpolar stars, and their differing positions in the night sky in different seasons.

    In this case the position of the Ursa major and minor constellations.

    on a side note apparently you can calculate time basis this.

    The nebula/ constellation is Orion.

    The red and blue shift phenomena present in the Orion nebula can’t be explained simply by doppler effect.
    hence they’d to do some new jazzy theory for this.

    I guess another concept could be *perspective*.

    Picture of the same star field from the southern and northern hemispheres respectively. Recently featured on APOD.


  21. The “up side down” orientation of the Orion’s belt in the southern hemisphere. It is called the saucepan in the southern hemisphere.

    many years back i bought this black belt, which if you flip over becomes a brown belt. apparently this dude orion had come up with this concept many years back. flipped his belt over every equinox.

    One from northern hemisphere another from southern hemisphere.


  24. The Orion Constellation as seen from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Hence the apparent rotation of around 180 degrees.
