    The pic has it backwards, during the main hrs of the day (anything after 6am and before 6pm) it would be opposite. The N in the picture would towards the south, and north would be on the line in the bottom of the picture.

    The only way that picture would be correct is at four in the morning, but the sun is rarely visible at that time

    Die Hard Survivor this is misleading and could get people lost. The N in the picture is actually the south

    Line up the moons points and follow it to the horizon and that will be south. Even a partial waning moon can be bisected top to bottom and followed down to the southern horizon. Moss grows on the north side of trees most often as well.
