The Arctic Ocean, the North Pole, the Arctic Circle.
They are called the Arctic Circle and the Antarctic Circle.
The Arctic Circle, as of 1 July 2017, runs 66°33′46.7″ north of the Equator. The Arctic Circle is the most northerly of the five major circle (line) of Latitude.
"Top" and "bottom" are imprecise terms when describing a globe, but we conventionally think of the Arctic Circle as being at the top.
Look at a globe. The Arctic Circle surrounds the North Pole at the top of it, the South Pole is at the bottom. The equator circles the globe halfway between the two. Whichever way you read it, the Arctic Circle is closer to the equator than the South Pole is, and the Arctic Circle is closer to the equator than it is to the South Pole.
66½ºN is the Arctic Circle; 66½ºS is the Antarctic Circle.
Probably for the same reason that the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are drawn on the globe.
the arctic circle is at 66.5oN, while the antarctic circle is at 66.5oS
The Tropic Of cancer is 23.5 degrees north from the equator and the Tropic of Capricorn is 23.5 degrees south of the equator. The artic circle is the top of the globe and the Antarctic circle is located south of the globe ( way at the bottom)

The Arctic Circle is not a country. It's an imaginary line of constant latitude on the globe. It extends all the way around the world in length, but its width is zero. It has no population, no area, and no capital.
These two circles on the world globe mark the latitude south of which -- the Arctic Circle, or north of which -- the Antarctic Circle, at least one sunrise and one sunset occurs in each 24-hour period.South of the Antarctic Circle and North of the Arctic Circle, there is at least one 24-hour period without a sunrise or a sunset, depending on the season.
a-plus areas north of the Arctic Circle
Seeing as the arctic circle refers to a line around the globe slightly south of the north pole (Approx. 66 degrees N) and the South Pole is a single point at the very southernmost point of the earth, and given that the equator is directly in the middle between the north and south poles, the arctic circle would clearly be closer.
The very top. In the middle of the Arctic Circle. Just look for all the ice above Russia, Greenland, and Canada.

If you've looked and haven't been able to find it yet, the reason may be thespelling you're looking for. Try instead to find the Arctic Circle. It's a circle aroundthe north pole, about 1/4 of the way down from the pole to the equator. (The equatoris the fattest part, around the middle of the globe.)
Generally speaking, The Arctic
To locate a spot on the globe, we'll need longitude and latitude. Two latitudes could be anywhere.
The largest line of circumference on the globe is the Equator.
Since the earth is a globe, some air routes are shorter when the flight goes over the Arctic. Those flights take a part of the "great circle" and shave off hours of distance. In fact great circle routes are applicable anywhere on the globe because they are the shortest routes between any two points.
Earth's symbol is primarily a circle with a cross in the middle. Planet earth differs slightly, as it is a globe-shaped sphere, as the earth is shaped.
The key lines are latitude and longitude. These are based on specific points. The equator is the latitude around the center of the earth. Longitude is measured from the Prime Meridian, which goes through the Greenwich Observatory in England.The Tropics and the Arctic/Antarctic Circle are also key.
The globe is commonly divided from north to south into five zones between the North Pole and the South Pole. From the North Pole to the Arctic Circle is the arctic zone. From the Arctic Circle to the Tropic of Cancer is the temperate zone. From the South Pole to the Antarctic Circle is the antarctic zone. From the Antarctic Circle to the Tropic of Capricorn is also the temperate zone. In the middle, from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn (with the Equator in the middle) is the tropic zone, or the Tropics. Most of Africa lies in this part of the world.
