Marks the southern extremity where the sun is above the horizon for 24 continuous hours at least one day per year in June on the northern (or summer) solstice), and where the sun will be below the horizon for at least 24 continuous hours in December (winter or Southern solstice).

Occurs in June when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer. This is the day when people in the Northern Hemisphere experience the longest period of day light and is the first day of summer. At this same time it is the first day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

This parallel is the farthest northern latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead. The sun is directly over this parallel at noon on the summer or northern solstice.

An imaginary circle drawn around a planet (or other astronomical object) at a distance halfway between the poles.

An event in astronomy when the Sun can be observed to be directly above the Earth's equator. The event occurs twice a year, around March 20 and September 23 and marks the first day of spring or autumn. Result is roughly equal hours of daylight and night 12 Hours

Farthest southern latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead. The sun is directly over this parallel at noon on the winter or southern solstice. The Solstice occurs in December of each year and is the day when people in the Southern Hemisphere experience the longest period of day light and is the first day of summer. At this same time it is the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

The inclination angle of a planet's rotational axis in relation to a perpendicular to its orbital plane. It is also called #### inclination or obliquity. The #### #### is expressed as the angle made by the planet's axis and a line drawn through the planet's centre perpendicular to the orbital plane.

Marks the northern extremity where the sun is above the horizon for 24 continuous hours at least one day per year in December on the southern (or winter) solstice), and where the sun will be below the horizon for at least 24 continuous hours in June (summer or northern solstice).
