Zero Shadow Day

Resource Info

Basic Information

It is said that your shadow never leaves you! But, it does twice a year for regions between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

On these two days, the Sun will be exactly overhead at noon and will not cast a shadow of an object on the ground.

The Zero Shadow Day will be different for different places on Earth.

You can find the two Zero Shadow Days at your location using this interactive map made by Alok Mandavgane.
