Countries that the Prime Meridian passes through

A prime meridian is a meridian (a line of longitude) in a geographical coordinate system at which longitude is defined to be 0°. Together, a prime meridian and its anti meridian (the 180th meridian in a 360°-system) form a great circle. This great circle divides the sphere, e.g., the Earth, into two hemispheres. If one uses directions of East and West from a defined prime meridian, then they can be called Eastern Hemisphere and Western Hemisphere.

There are 8 countries, 3 continents and 6 water bodies lies on Prime Meridian passes.

Tropic of Cancer India – The Tropic of Cancer, also known as the Northern Tropic, is 23°26′13.4″ (or 23.43705°) north of Equator. This line of latitude was named around 2,000 years ago. When it was named, the Sun was in constellation Cancer at June solstice, the time every year that Sun will reaches its zenith at this latitude. Due to the precession of equinoxes, it is no longer the case; the Sun is in the Taurus at June solstice.
