The Antarctic Circle is a major circle of latitude located at 66.5 degrees south of the equator. It defines the polar region and marks the southernmost point of the polar day and polar night during the December and June solstices respectively.

How are the Arctic and Antarctic Circles alike?

They both have polar weather conditions and climate, are near the northernmost or southernmost points of the earth. Both circle a pole (North or South pole), and are the same approximate distance from the equator. They're both located at approximately 66° 33' 44" latitude (North and South, respectively -- and they wobble with the Earth's wobble). Also, they both mark the extremities of Polar Day where there is a 24 hour period of sunlight and a 24 hour period of darkness at least once a year.

They both support sea life, but each also has unique lifeforms adapted to the climate. Humpback whales, and krill swim in both the Arctic and the Southern Oceans.

Arctic is North on the globe/earth.

Antarctic is in the south.

They both enclose lots of ice. They both have names starting with the letter 'A': they are both cold and icy.

The Arctic and Antarctic Circles are alike because of their polar climates, magnetism, wildlife, and locations. They both have freezing climates and wildlife, especially with sperm whales traveling back and forth between them. They are also both located at 66.5 degrees latitude on maps. Both also contain magnetic poles that are part of the magnetic field on the planet.
