The rays of the sun are most concentrated at the point on earth that's on the line

from the sun's center to the earth's center. That would be at 'noon' at some point

in the earth's Tropic Zone ... always within 23.5 degrees north or south of the equator,

and to a person standing at that point, the sun would appear directly over his head.

On March 21 and September 21, the point is exactly on the equator. On June 21, it's

23.5 degrees north, and on December 21, it's 23.5 degrees south. At other times, it's

somewhere else between those latitudes.

Notice that if you're more than 23.5 degrees north or south of the equator, the sun

can never appear directly over your head.
