Tropic of Cancer

21 April 2018
The Tropic of Cancer, also referred to as the Northern Tropic, is currently 23°26′12.9″ (or 23.43691°) north of the Equator. It is the most northerly circle of latitude on Earth at which the Sun can be directly overhead. North of the tropic are the subtropics and the North Temperate Zone. The equivalent line of latitude south of the Equator is called the Tropic of Capricorn, and the region between the two, centered on the Equator, is the tropics. So we can officially say we are in the tropics now.
Starting at the prime meridian and heading eastward, the Tropic of Cancer passes through 16 countries including Exuma. It is located at an area known as Tropic of Cancer beach on the southern end of Exuma and is marked with a statue topped with a crab, the zodiac sign for cancer. It was named tropic of cancer over 2000 years ago and at that time the sun was located in the constellation cancer during the June solstice.
