  1. Southern Hemisphere

    The Southern Hemisphere is part of a rotating astronomical body that lies south of the equator. The word hemisphere literally means 'half ball' or "half sphere". It is also that half of the celestial sphere south of the celestial equator. On Earth the Southern Hemisphere contains all or parts of four continents, three oceans and most of Oceania. Several islands off the Asian continental mainland are also in the Southern Hemisphere.
