I didn't think I'd want to post anymore Mandela Effects here, but this one caught my eye as it's a 'change to a change'. Actually there have been several jaw-dropping Mandela Effects the last few months - I'm still researching them, and may post them here at a later date.
Now about South America..
If you follow the Mandela Effect, you'll know proponents (including myself) state South America is dramatically further East than we remember.
The title of this post says it all.. South America is now even further East.
We were watching documentaries this afternoon, one of which showed a World Map. The image showed SA much closer to Africa than the last change. I had to look it up - and sure enough, SA is way further East than it's initial movement. Additionally, the 'bulge' of Brazil seems to be enlarged more so than the initial change - perhaps excited to get back to Africa?
There isn't a whole lot to say on it.. Those that are "Effected" (affected) will see what I mean, those that aren't won't; to them the World Map has always looked like this.
It doesn't matter what projection you use..
Wow is all I can say. If it keeps moving, Panama is going to be stretched out of existence.
For extra points, note the size of Alaska - it's now roughly half the size of America.
Edit to add: Here's the link to the full size image:
A map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations from the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid into locations on a plane. Mapscannot be created without map projections. All map projections necessarily distort the surface in some fashion. Depending on the purpose of the map, some distortions are acceptable and others are not; therefore, different map projections exist in order to preserve some properties of the sphere-like body at the expense of other properties. There is no limit to the number of possible map projections.:1
