I've been struggling with this question all morning, yet I get the feeling the answer is frightfully simple.
If Orion appears upside down in the Southern Hemisphere and the right way up in the Northern Hemisphere, what does it look like in equatorial countries such as Kenya, Colombia, and Ecuador, bearing in mind that Orion itself is in the equatorial region of the celestial sphere?
I initially thought it could just be a matter of perspective: If you're on the equator and facing North you'll see it the right way up,but see it upside down if you're facing South. But then surely that approach would apply even if you were in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.
I reckon the times Orion is visible in various parts of the world will also have to be factored in. For example, it is visible at night late spring to summer in the Southern Hemisphere.
Could anyone offer me some advice? I fear I may be over-thinking this.
Thanks in advance.
