The United States is located in both the Northern and Western hemispheres. The Equator divides the Earth into Northern and Southern hemispheres while the Prime Meridian divides the Earth into Eastern and Western hemispheres.
The Northern Hemisphere includes all of North America, the northern reaches of South America, about two-thirds of Africa, all of Asia excluding (parts of Indonesia) and all of Europe. The Southern Hemisphere includes most of South America, one-third of Africa, all of Antarctica, a small sliver of Asia (parts of Indonesia) and all of Australia/Oceania.
The United States is in the northern and western hemispheres, though some of the Aleutian Islands are in the eastern hemisphere. Attu Island, Alaska, is the most "westerly" at 172°54′33.84″E.

Hemisphere means half of a sphere, so there are four overlapping hemispheres. The US is in both the northern hemisphere (meaning it's north of the equator) and the western hemisphere (meaning it's west of the Prime Meridian which crosses Greenwich in the UK)
North America is a continent entirely within the Northern Hemisphere and almost all within the Western Hemisphere; it is also considered by some to be a northern subcontinent of the Americas. It is bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the west and south by the Pacific Ocean, and to the southeast by South America and the Caribbean Sea.
The Northern Hemisphere is the half of Earth that is north of the Equator. For other planets in the Solar System, north is defined as being in the same celestial hemisphere relative to the invariable plane of the solar system as Earth's North Pole.
The Southern Hemisphere includes most of South America, one-third of Africa, all of Antarctica, a small sliver of Asia (parts of Indonesia) and all of Australia/Oceania.. There are exceptions as some continents (and their countries) based on the straight-line divisions of the Equator and Prime Meridian are a part of two hemispheres.. For a map and list of countries in both the Eastern and ...
