The Tropic of Cancer, which is also referred to as the Northern tropic, is the circle of latitude on the Earth that serves as a marker for the most northerly position at which the sun may appear directly overhead at its zenith. This event happens once per year, at the time of the June solstice, when the Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun to its maximum degree. Its Southern Hemisphere counterpart, marking the most southerly position at which the Sun might appear directly...
A prime meridian is a meridian, i.e. a line of longitude, at which the definition of longitude is zero degrees. A prime meridian and its opposite in a 360 degree-system, the 180th meridian, create a great circle. This great circle separates the sphere into two hemispheres. If one uses directions f East and West from a defined prime meridian, then they can be named Eastern and Western Hemisphere. A prime meridian is eventually arbitrary, unlike an equator, which is determined by the axis...
An equator is the intersection of a sphere’s surface with the plane that is perpendicular to the sphere’s axis of rotation and midway between the poles. The Equator is normally referred to the Earth’s equator: an imaginary line on the Earth’s surface halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole, separating the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere. Other planets and astronomical bodies have equators that are similarly defined. The Equator is approximately...

It includes parts of Russia, Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Lapland and Svalbard as well as the Arctic Ocean. The Arctic Circle is one of the five major circles of latitude that mark maps of the Earth. Everything north of this circle is known as the Arctic, and the zone just to the south of this circle is the Northern Temperate Zone. This is the parallel of...
