Crossing the Equator

Crossing the Equator

With 40.075,004 km or 24,901 mi, the Equator or Parallel 0 is the largest imaginary circle that passes around the Earth. It is the line that separates North and South. The Equator divides the Earth in two equal parts, the Northern Hemisphere or septentrional and the Southern Hemisphere or Meridional. The latitude of the Equator is 0º by definition and is situated at exactly half the distance between the South and North Pole. Here the sun and the stars are exactly the same time above the horizon as they are below. Al days of the year the night is exactly 12 hours long. Crossing the Equator is a pagan ritual with a long history among sailors. All supposedly infidel, sailors that have never crossed the Equator before, must be baptized when they cross to avoid the wrath of Neptune who reigns over all seas.
