Florida is closer to the equator than southern Argentina or any part of Spain is,

although it's closer to southern Spain than it is to Argentina. But northern Argentina

is closer to the equator than either Florida or any part of Spain. Southern Spain is

also closer to Florida than it is to Argentina, but no part of any of them is as close

to the Equator as Ecuador or Gabon is.

Northern Argentina is closer (about 1500 miles or 2400 kilometers south of the equator). Argentina (and most of South America) is south of the equator, so northern Argentina is closer to the equator than southern Argentina. (Argentina extends from about 22°S to about 55°S latitude.)



The northern half of Argentina is closer to the equator than the southernmost point in Spain.


Northern Argentina. Southern Argentina includes part of Antartica.


Most of Argentina is farther from the equator than all of southern Spain is,but there's a part in the north that's closer. I'm not in either country.There are some parts of Argentina that are farther from the equator than any placein Spain is, but there are certainly places in northern Argentina that are closer to theequator than many parts of southern Spain are.

If you could find a way to put North Carolina into northern Argentina, it would be closer to the equator there than it would be if it were in southern Spain.



Florida is closer to the equator.


No.Southern Michigan is about 43° north of the equator, while northern Argentina is only about 20° south of the equator. Argentina extends as far south as 55° S latitude, the southern tip of South America.


Argentina, like Chile, is very long north-to-south, and extends from about 20° S to about 55° S latitude. So northern Argentina is closer by far to the equator, central Argentina is about midway, and southern Argentina is closer to the south pole.



St. Louis, Missouri is closer to Seville (southern Spain) than to northern Argentina, by about 400 miles. (States south and southwest of St. Louis, such as Arizona, Texas, and Florida are closer to Argentina.)


Assuming that YOU were in either of those locations:Northern Argentina is closer to the equator. The latitude of the equator is zero. Latitudes increase as you move farther from the equator, both north and south.The northernmost point in Argentina is near 21.8° south latitude while the southernmost point in Spain is about 36° N near Gibraltar.There are Spanish islands closer to the equator, the Canary Islands, at 27.6° N, but even so northern Argentina is closer to the equator by about 6° of latitude.



Southernmost Spain is closer to the equator (36° N) than southernmost Argentina (55° S) Argentina stretches from 20°S down to 55°S in southern South America. In western Europe, Spain lies between 36° N (the Mediterranean) and 43° N latitude (Bay of Biscay).


Yes. The US is north of the equator, so the southern states are closer to the equator.

Northern Argentina is only 21 degrees south of the equator. All US states except Hawaii are north of the equator by more than 24 degrees. Southern Michigan is nearly twice as far north (42 degrees north). *(Argentina does extend south as far as 55 degrees, which is as far from the equator as southern Alaska.)



Most of the northern and central US is closer to Spain than to Argentina. But many southern and southwest locations such as Nevada, Texas, and Florida (and Hawaii) are closer to Argentina.Except for Hawaii (about 20°N), all of the US is farther from the equator (north) than northern Argentina is (22° to the south).Argentina, like Chile, is very long north-to-south, and extends from about 21° S to about 55° S latitude. Spain extends north of the equator from about 36° N to 43° N.
