The Arctic Circle is known to most people as the spot where the sun
never sets on June 21, the summer solstice, and the spot where the sun
never rises on December 21, the winter solstice. Actually, the Arctic
Circle location varies by 2.5 degrees of latitude on a 40,000 year
cycle. Currently the location is moving northward about 25 feet a year.
The parallel of latitude approximately 66°33′ north. It forms the boundary between the North Temperate and North Frigid zones.
