So what makes you think the view would be different? Look at a mountain many miles away, take 2 side steps sideways....

Now is the mountain looking any different? yes or no please.

what is your view from the other side of the mountian?

Okay...let's use some basics!

Pretend you have a beach ball (the sun)...and you have a tennis ball ( the earth)..and they are sitting in the middle of your living room!

Can the tennis ball see your ceiling fan no matter where it is in relation to the beach ball?

The answer is yes...much like the stars and earth in comparison to the sun!

Does that make it easier to understand?

I gave you one...are you having trouble following my example?

Beach ball...tennis ball...ceiling fan...does that make it difficult to understand?

Everyone understands the question, you're not understanding the answer. Look at a moving model of the solar system to see how the Earth moves. If you're in the northern hemisphere then northern stars will always be visible, the northern star for example, while some constellations are only visible in certain seasons. It will be a lot clearer if you look at how the Earth moves.

Depending on the season...you have a view of both hemispheres!

How cool...you should really explore learning more about astronomy!

Well you're in one of the hemispheres, it doesn't make a difference to my explanation, you'll just see more change. You'll see the same constellations every year at the same time of year though.

I've explained the movement of the constellations, for proof that the Earth orbits the sun look at star parallax. I don't know what else you can possibly want.

I think the op was looking for a general answer and used the equator, kind of playing a mental exercise

Or hes a huge troll.
