The Tropic of Capricorn is one of Earth's major circles of
latitude. It lies 23.5 degrees south of the equator and marks the most southerly
latitude at which the sun can appear directly overhead at noon. Running through
Australia, Chile, Southern Brazil, and South Africa, it links extreme conditions
and dramatic landscapes.
