Long Description:
In this place of the observatory you can see the representation of the Greenwich meridian in several ways. A continuous vertical red line across the building, a white one on a wall and a concrete one on the floor in the middle. All continuous.
In addition to taking the typical photo with one half of your body on each side, you can experience both sides of the earth and see the W-E compass "dance"
Scientific Principle(s) being demonstrated:
map changes: east and west longitude

Briefly explain if the experiment was effective for you. Could it have been better?:
The experiment was curious, and the photos of the place are very good for show to children that lines are abstracts, and we paint them for see

When is the apparatus/experiment available to the public:
All days 10-17 h
