Geocache Description:

Bienvenue a Serre Chevalier le moitie sud de la hemisphere du nord.....300 jours du soleil par an!!!!

Welcome to Serre Chevalier and the southern half of the northern hemisphere.....300 sunny days per year!!!


En géographie, le 45e parallèle nord est le parallèle joignant les points de la surface de la Terre dont la latitude est égale à 45° nord. Il marque les points situés à mi-chemin entre l'équateur et le pôle Nord en termes de latitude (en termes de distance, les points situés à mi-chemin de ces deux régions sont un peu au nord du 45e parallèle, vers 45° 09' N, la Terre étant un sphéroïde légèrement aplati).

The 45th parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 45 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane. It crosses Europe, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America, and the Atlantic Ocean. The 45th parallel north is often called the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole, but the true halfway point is actually 16.2 kilometres (10.1 mi) north of the 45th parallel because the Earth is oblate, that is, it bulges at the equator and is flattened at the poles. At this latitude the sun is visible for 15 hours, 37 minutes during the summer solstice and 8 hours, 46 minutes during the winter solstice. The midday sun stands 21.6 degrees above the southern horizon at the December solstice, 68.4 degrees at the June solstice, and exactly 45.0 degrees at the two equinoxes.
