# Why in different places seems directions are changed? [closed]

I'm living at place A I traveled to B and I seen like sun isn't set as in place A. Like directions are changed. Where east is in place B is north of A and south of A is west of B. Because of sun wasn't set in B as usually as set in place A. Sun rises in north at place B and sets in south. I really confused with this phenomenon of nature. Is it mean we consider direction which region we living in? Is it all because of longitude and latitude? Why it'd be like this? May it because if sun travel by specific longitude and latitude and so we would confused in situation like this even sun is stable planet and just earth rotate?

• almost everywere on the planet the sun rises in the east and sets in the west,atleast twice a year. it might be interesting to see what direction the answers to this whill take. Mar 10 '17 at 8:39
• You have to tell us the places and times and the exact directions - if only to show us that this is not a case of bad observations. Mar 10 '17 at 10:56
• what i think is the question is this,when i travel north/south why do the sun not rise/set in the direct east/west direction but moves notrh/south.if this is the case it is a question better asked in the astronomy section,it is possible i am wrong but it sounds like it fits better over there.

• Just in case one of these places is subject to a localized magnetic anomaly, is your ascertaining of east & west based on readings from a compass, or just observation of the sun in the sky?

• There's only a 0.6 km difference in the north-south distance between those two points. That's far too small too see any distinction in the direction of sunrise and sunset with the eye. Mar 10 '17 at 12:20
