Yes it can. Especially if you are going to refer to celestial objects.
Anything directly over the south pole can be seen by anyone in the southern hemisphere of the Earth, as long as it's at least several hundred miles
Take the Southern Cross as an example. It is directly over the south pole, but can be seen by anyone south of the Earth's equator.
A "rogue planet", if it existed, would be quite visible to anyone on the Earth south of the equator, even if it is directly below the south pole.
The only way it would NOT be visible is if it was literally closer than a few hundred miles.......and you would not have a good day if that was true
(our entire planet would not be having a good day if that was true).
Now if you want to say that the web cams are off line because they are hiding something smaller (IE UFOs, mutant attacking peguins, etc), then your
idea would be a bit more believable.
But some rogue planet such as Nibiru?
Sorry. ANY web cam facing south would be able to see it as long as it was below the equator.
