It seems that people in the southern hemisphere, in relation to people in the southern hemisphere, would be standing "upside down", and vice versa. However, everyone's perception is that of standing upwards. Logic says that for each person, their perception of UP begins with what's above. For our southern hemisphere, wouldn't Jupiter's south pole be perceived as UP from people's heads, thus making Jupiter upside down relatively, and wouldn't that show the red spot at Jupiter's northern hemisphere? For comparison, say two people's shoes are stuck sole-to-sole, facing the same direction, with one person standing upwards and the other upside down. A giant book with writing on it is positioned away from them at a distance. The person with head towards the "north" of the book would read the book normally, while the person with head towards the "south" of book would see the words upside down. Anything at the top fo the page for the upward person would appear at he bottom for the upside down person, because the top of the book is in the same direction as the upside down person's feet.
Re: Would Jupiter's red spot appear northerly from our southern hemisphere?
