IIRC, they're both visible at the same TIME from the southern hemisphere. You look south for the archer, and north for the hunter.

Odd. I was just thinking about being able to see Sag in the evening and Orion pre-dawn today.

I was also thinking that in the southern hemisphere the Sun, Moon, and planets will always be somewhat northerly.

Which is great if you view Jupiter through a reflector, because the GRS will appear the way you see it in images. :lol:
