    It is nearly 11pm.

    Yet Google Sky is telling me it is below me near my feet (ie) on the other side of the world at the moment.

    I have GPS turned on, and I think my compass in the phone is working ok as a compass app finds North perfectly.

    Anyone got this problem with Google Sky on their GT540.

    Its a great app but for me is just light years away (excuse the pun) on accuracy.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    (UPDATE)
    This morning I can see the sun in the sky and Google Sky pinpoints it perfectly, so why was it showing the moon in the wrong hemisphere last night?

    Just posting a solution I found to this...

    KNOWLEDGE!

    I learned something today that I didnt know, and I am betting ALOT of other people out there didnt know or realise either.

    The moon does not always show in sky at night, not even if you go outside (UK) on a clear night at around 3am.

    On the day in question in my original post - the moon rises up over the horizon at 4:07am. So that is why Google Sky showed it below the horizon at 11pm.

    So, thats it really. Google Sky DOES work perfect on the gt540.

    :)
