What is at 30 degrees of the equator?
Svalbard, North Cape, Vitsyebsk (Belarus), Homyel (Belarus), Chernobyl (Ukraine), Black Sea, Istanbul (Turkey),Tanta (Egypt), Cairo (Egypt), Dunqulah (Sudan), Al Ubayyid (Sudan), Shambe (Sudan), Kigaii (Burundi), Kabwe (Zambia), Tull (Zimbabwe), Pietersburg (South Africa) and Pietermaritzburg (South Africa).
The dead sea is placed at 32 degrees 30 minutes North, 35 degrees 30 minutes East. That makes the closest point on the equator be 0 degrees North, 35 degrees 30 minutes East. Therefore its distance from the equator is 32 degrees and 30 minutes, which are 3614 kilometers. Please see the related links for the data and calculator I have used to find this out.
