Is vanuatu on the tropic of cancer?
Vanuatu is an island off the northeast coast of Australia, and located in the Tropic of Capricorn. Vanuatu lies 2,848 miles south of the Tropic of Cancer.
The Tropic of Cancer gets its name from the constellation Cancer. When the Sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, it is in the constellation of Cancer, or at least it was back when the Tropic of Cancer was named. The seasons and constellations drift over time, if it were named today it would be the Tropic of Gemini.
