No, rotate the other one! Mine has north at the top. Call me old-fashioned but that's the way I like it.

In astronomy, old fashioned puts south at the top.

One of the great delights of my astrophotography is the fact that the capture software I use allows mirror reflections to be elected at the flick of a switch. One simple click, made once, and I ever after see the correct orientation on my computer screen. It always bothered me to no end that astronomers sketching the Moon, Mars, etc., used to make south-up maps instead of performing the simple transformation.

Totally off topic, but look what happens when you view maps upside down.

Mike Seibert just tweeted this:

Opportunity drove 10.7m to the north of Pompys Tower mound on Sol 4559


But he meant to say 'south'
