Titanic - Are We Going to Visit Santa Claus?
During the "I'm flying" scene with Jack and Rose at the front of the ship, the sun is directly to their left as it sets. We all know the sun sets in the west right? And Titanic is supposed to be going to New York, which is also west from did the Titanic decide it wanted to take a stop at the North Pole or something? Clearly the green screen people wanted the lighting to be pretty and yes a sunset is pretty but they flubbed and ended up redirecting where the ship is going!

Actually, this scene wasn't made with a green screen. Kate and Leo were interviewed on Oprah, and she asked about the same scene. The slip up did happen, but it wasn't on a green screen,

Swisa is right. The sunset was real but you're right also, they messed up and put it on the wrong side!

Actually the ship was not going West. Look at a globe. Trace a path West from Europe with your finger. See how long a sale it is? Now trace another not quite over the planet, passing close to Greenland. See how much shorter the trip is? It is the same with jets. They do not go straight West - the way is too long. They go over the top of the planet - a short cut and a much shorter journey.

Was Titanic using that method of going north to cut off distance? Did most ships? We know the Titanic wasn't overly concearned about icebergs, but I don't think they'd make it a regular practice to send ships north into icy waters.
