Geography nerds unite! Got to get your picture at this, the sign for the Tropic of Capricorn. Then do a little dance between the temperate and Torrid zones!

First to Review

The Tropic of Capricorn (or the Southern Tropic) is the circle of latitude that contains the subsolar point on the December (or southern) solstice. It is thus the southernmost latitude where the Sun can be directly overhead. Its northern equivalent is the Tropic of Cancer. The Tropic of Capricorn is one of the five major circles of latitude that mark maps of the Earth. You can see the marker right outside the Council Chambers.
