You draw a vertical line, it *is* over the shoulder. If you then picture the 
planet rising in an arc, clockwise, it doesn't sound far off. But here my 
understanding of english may be just deficient.

The reflection on the visor, in that picture, looks like it's something 
relfected on a gilded surface. The black part could be interpreted as 
shadow. In fact, if I didn't know better, I might also guess the visor's 
surface was golden.
