Although it was taken from space, I'm pretty sure this is upside down.

Thanks to being spoiled by google earth I can't even be remotely interested in a picture from space....stupid technology

That's right, flip the photo and you will see the Sault airport in the west side of the picture.

The shot is taken north to south...

Forgive me, but how is that upside down?

We'll agree to disagree on this one.

Up and Down is completely relative, but yes, the urban area at the bottom of the picture is Soo Ontario, then St. Mary's River, then Soo MI is the urban area on top. Not how were used to seeing it, but this would be the angle that Commander Hadfeiled viewed the area from the ISS.

all I know is Haviland Bay on Google's has had the same two clouds for about 6 to 7 years....it's irrelevant ,outdated and too fuzzy to serve any real purpose

If you ask people in Australia, they will tell you which way is "UP."

We (society) have portrayed our planet, our solar system, galaxy, and indeed the universe, as existing on a horizontal plane.

What if our ever-spinning universe is more correctly vertical in orientation; and the north and south poles of our planet actually run left-to-right (-O-) , not up-and-down?

It depends on how you look at it.

there is no 'up' or 'down' in space. so if it is posted that way, then that is the way it is being seen by the eye of the beholder- which in context would be the 'right way.'

gotta step out of your globe, man.

cdnhunter 4/20/2013 8:08:09 PM Report

Sorry that should be "and they let you people vote"
