HETEROSCII

, in Geography, are such inhabitants of the earth as have their shadows at noon projected al. ways the same way with regard to themselves, or always contrary ways with respect to each other. Thus, all the inhabitants without the torrid zone are Heteroscii, with regard to themselves, since any one such inhabitant has his shadow at noon always the same way, viz, always north of him in north latitude, and always south of him in south latitude; or these two situations are Heteroseii to each other, having such shadows projected contrary ways at all times of the year.
