Who was Capricorn named for?
Capricorn was named after the Goat-fish Oannes (in persian). Basically Capricorn was a mythic creature, a water-god of the ancients.
It was named The Tropic of Capricorn because the sun was positioned in the Capricorn constellation during the Winter Solstice. The Tropic of Cancer was named because the sun was positioned in the Cancer constellation during the June Solstice. Also the invisible line is the Tropic of Cancer because when it was named the sun was in the direction of the constellation Cancer.
They are named after a constellation during the winter solstice (Capricorn) and Cancer is named after a constellation during the summer solstice.
Just because the people who named them thought that would be a good name. It's like asking why the zodiacs are called cancer and/or capricorn
The Tropic of Cancer was named because the sun was positioned in the Cancer constellation during the June solstice. The Tropic of Capricorn was positioned during the sun in the constellation Capricorn during the December solstice.
Cape Frio If you trace your finger across the Tropic of Capricorn, you will find that the cape is a little below the line.
The Tropic of Capricorn is in the southern hemisphere; the Tropic of Cancer is in the northern hemisphere. The way to remember is at the time of year when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, the sun was in the constellation of Capricorn back when the tropics were named.
No "named" line of longitude crosses Australia. The Tropic of Capricorn (latitude) crosses Australia.
Mo read to Capricorn twice, the first time was when he was supposed to read out treasure and he did but he also brought out a lizard and a boy named Farid, the second time was when he finished reading Feneglio's words that killed Capricorn.

The Tropic of Capricorn is so named because about 2000 years ago the sun was entering the constellation Capricornus on the December solstice. In modern times the sun appears in the constellation Sagittarius during this time. The change is due to precession of the equinoxes!!

All arownd the uonivers is 2 dotted linghs and it meens it has a tropical raneforist ?
At the time it was named based on the Sun location in the middle of the constellation of Cancer.
The only named line of latitude which crosses Australia is the Tropic of Capricorn.
Because an evil man named Capricorn had a heart as black as ink. It says it in the story.
There are five named latitudes: * The Arctic Circle, * The Tropic of Cancer, * The equator, * The Tropic of Capricorn and * The Antarctic Circle.
The book was named Inkheart originally because of Capricorn, seeing he has a black heart, just like ink.
The named lines of latitude are Arctic Circle, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, and Antarctic Circle.
Well it was named after tropics of the raneforist ? The tropic of Capricorn is the southernmost point where the sun will be directly overhead at noon on the winter's solstice. When named the sun was in the constalation of Capricorn during the solstice. That was 2000 years ago. Now the sun is in the constelation of Saggetarius during December. Should they change the name? Simillar with the tropic of Cancer, furthest north that the… Read More

One major line of latitude named the Tropic of Capricorn is located at 23.5 degrees south latitude.
Either the Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. BTW -- they're lines of latitude, not longitude.

As Capricorn is an earth element, their first compatibilities will be with other earth elements (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo).
Not necessarily. The "tropics" are so named because the land is between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. Between THESE two geographic areas is the equator. So the Brazillian rain forest is actually near the tropic of Capricorn, not on the equator. The rainforests of Asia are near the tropic of Cancer.
The Tropic of Cancer is parallel to every other line of latitude. Other "named" parallels are the equator, the Tropic of Capricorn, and the Arctic and Antarctic Circles.
Capricorn is a Zodiac sign. So the answer, I believe, would be Capricorn.
There was no room for it. The tropics of Capricorn and Cancer mark the most southerly and northerly (respectively) lattitudes at which the sun appears directly overhead at noon. At the time they were named, the sun was in the direction of the two named constellations. It was not in the constellation of Aquarius or any of the other ten signs of the Zodiac, hence there are no tropics named after them.
There cannot be a Gemini Capricorn. The only possible cuspids for those two signs are: *Gemini/Taurus *Gemini/Cancer *Capricorn/Sagittarius *Capricorn/Aquarius
-- The line of constant zero latitude, named the 'equator'. -- The line of constant 66.5° north latitude, named the Arctic Circle. -- The line of constant 42.03603° North latitude, which goes through my bedroom. -- The line of constant 23.5° north latitude, named the Tropic of Cancer -- The line of constant 23.5° south latitude, named the Tropic of Capricorn.

When a planet is said to be under Capricorn it means it's in the sign Capricorn. I suspect the phrase originated from the definition of a planet being under the influence of Capricorn.

There is a summer solstice and a winter solstice. Summer solstice is the longest day of the year and winter solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Constellations are areas in the sky. At one time the sun was in the area occupied by the Constellation Cancer during Summer Solstice. At that point that particular latitude was named The Tropic of Cancer after that Constellation. At Winter Solstice the sun… Read More
