  • The axis of the earth is inclined at an angle of 23.5° to the plane of its orbit
  • This inclination helps us to mark the following important parallels on the globe:
    • The Tropic of Cancer at 23.5° N
    • The Tropic of Capricorn at 23.5° S
    • The Arctic Circle at 66.5° N
    • The Antarctic Circle at 66.5° S
    • The equator at , the North Pole at 90° N and the South Pole at 90° S are also important parallels
