Hold out your right hand, with your palm out, facing east
, with your fingers pointing north
If you're doing it right, your hand will be sideways, with your little finger (the 'pinky') at the top
and your thumb at the bottom
Now rotate your arm at the shoulder so that your hand follows the path of the Sun across the sky, over your head and down to the western horizon.
Keep your fingers pointing north
, with your palm out.
When your palm is facing west
, with your fingers facing north
, notice that your thumb is on top
and your pinky is on the
; as if it had rotated.
Not only the Sun does this, the Moon and every single constellation does, too.
