That happens at the time when the sun passes the "solstices", which are
points on the map of the stars. Those days themselves are often called the
solstices, but that's incorrect.
That's called a solstice.
Those points are called the Solstices.
The points where the sun reaches the greatest distance north or south of the equator are called The Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. At one time the sun was in those constellations when it reached those points. It has shifted due to precession of the poles. It will be back in them in about 20,000 years.
These points are called the solstices, Winter and summer Solstice.
Those places, marked on a map of the stars, are called 'solstices'. The sun reaches them on or very near June 21 and December 22 of each year.
The Sun is farthest from the equator during the solstices or when summer and winter begin.
SolsticeThis is called the "solstice", and it happens on June 21 and December 21 (plus or minus one day, due to the cycle of leap years). When the Sun reaches its maximum distance north of the equator on June 21, we call it the summer solstice (and in the southern hemisphere the winter solstice). When the Sun reaches its maximum distance south, this is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere (and the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere).Just think; in Australia, Christmas is a summer holiday!
Terminal velocity is the greatest velocity a falling object reaches.
The distance north or south of the equator is called "latitude". Conversely, distance along the equator (around the globe) is called longitude.
Distance is not meassured in degrees.The angle north or south of the equator is called the "latitude" of the location.
The distance north or south of the equator can be measured in miles, kilometers, etc.The angle of a location north or south of the equator is called the latitude of that place.
There is no city called 'equator'. Please improve the question.
'Distance' can't be measured in degrees.The angle from the equator to the place of interestis the latitude of the place.
The point in a planet's orbit where it reaches its maximum distance from the Sun is called the Aphelion.
Declination (positive and negative respectively) is the angular distance between north and south of the Celestial Equator.
It is called latitude.
That is called latitude.
The distance north or south of the equator is measured in degrees of latitude. For example, the equator is measured at 0 degrees; Sydney Australia lies 33.51 degrees south of the equator; Helsinki Finland lies 60 degrees north of the equator.
The "latitude" of any place is the angle on the Earth's surface between that placeand the equator. That angle is the basic measurement, and the distance can becalculated from it.
These are called latitude lines.
When measurung distance north or south from the equator, you refer to latitude. It is measured in degrees. You will also see the term parallel referring to a specific line of latitude.
The greatest velocity, achieved when the acceleration due to gravity is balanced by the aerodynamic deceleration, is called the terminal velocity.
The "lines" are called latitude lines.lines of latitude
