This question is not all that difficult, but it might still make you think a little! All replies are welcome as long as they don't give the answer away!

Sure, if the parts of the sphere are semitransparent.

All you have to do is set up a mirror a decent distance away from you, and you can see half the sphere by alternately looking directly at the sphere and looking through the mirror at it :P ! Using two mirrors, and placing them behind and two each side of the sphere, you can see all of it at once :P :P !
