Temperate Zone

Astrological Dictionary

The area between the TROPICS and the North or South Pole of the earth. By subtracting 23?27' - the position of the Tropic, from 90? we get latitude of 66?33'. These mark the Earth's Arctic or Antarctic circles (LESSER CIRCLES). At the Solstices, the Sun does not set in these regions but remains above the horizon for 24 hours.
