    Re: facing Mecca

    Great circle.    For example, Muslims here in the San Francisco Bay area
    face northeast when praying.
    
    I've never been able to find an answer to, though, is what direction one
    faces (or whether it matters) when one is at the antipodal point to
    Mecca (ie, the one directly opposite it on the globe) -- at that place
    every direction points to Mecca.
