"Equator" in context

The equator is an imaginary line that circles the globe that marks the halfway point between the North Pole and the South Pole. It divides the Earth into the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The Equator is the greatest circle of latitude on Earth at 0° latitude, and it is always perpendicular to the Earth's axis of rotation. Because of this, the sun is always directly overhead at the Equator at some point during the day. The equator is also used to define the starting point for measuring longitude.

Mariners and explorers have used the Equator to measure location for centuries.
