Earth is a big planet( don’t compare in context to a jupiter).
What if you get lost somewhere on earth, may sound a bit hilarious but imagine you decide to go a remote secluded place to take out time for ourself and somehow you get lost and you don’t have a compass or you have lost your compass.
1.) Using an Analog Wrist Watch when the sun is up
In the Northern Hemisphere.
Take your watch, point the hour hand towards the sun and bisect the angle midway between 12 o clock and the hour hand of your watch is North-South Line

Sun rises in east and is in the east before noon. The Sun is at Due South at noon. The sun is in the west after noon.

Everything Remains the same as in Northern Hemisphere, except that point the 12 o clock towards the sun.
