Other side of the moon

I am not an expert on the way the universe works.... I know that when it is summer here in Japan it is winter in New Zealand, when the water goes down the sink in a circular motion in Japan it goes in the opposite direction to that in New Zealand, and when you build a house in Japan it should face south for the best sun, rather than north as it does in New Zealand (or have I got it around the wrong way again.....). Apart from that I am pretty much lost as to how things work. However, one thing that I have discovered is that no matter where you are the moon is full on the same day (well at least it is in Japan and NZ!). Tonight there is a beautiful full moon here and my NZ calendar tells me it is also a full moon in NZ. Just thought you'd like to know that... better than complaining to you about the heat again anyway!
Now I just have to work out whether the quarter moons etc. face the same direction or not.... maybe I could take off in my son's birthday cake to find out. Somehow it managed to stand up long enough to take a photo.... (it is a rocket, just in case anyone is wondering!).

    When you're trying to work out if they look the same, don't forget to take into account whether you're standing on your head at the time...
