What's happening on the other side of the planet?
Fun fact - its easy to find out where the exact other side of the planet is located - and you may be surprised to find out how VERY different it is. Go thee to WolframAlpha.com and type in :
"antipode of current location"
and it will show the spot on the globe (on the opposite side) underneath your feet. Wolfram 'knows' your current location (approximate) based upon the internet connection you are using.
You can take the resulting nfo and plug it into Google globe for a closeup shot. Surprisingly, the Southern Ocean shows up - and its a VERY remote place! Here's a shot showing Ill Aux Cochons, a tiny little island 638 miles away from Sebastopol CA alter-location. There's also another shot with other 'nearby' landfalls. Pretty amazing
