Theme: The Theme is life on the equator during February and March. It is summer in Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador and other areas in South America. February and March are also the hottest months in Kenya, Uganda, Somalia, The Republic of the Congo, and Democratic Republic of the Congo. Indonesia is a tropical temperature area year round. Places on the Equator experience the quickest rates of sunrise and sunset in the world. They are also the only places in the world where the sun can go directly from the zenith to the nadir and from the nadir to the zenith. Such places also have a theoretical constant 12 hours of day and night throughout the year, though in practice, there are variations of a few minutes due to the effects of atmospheric refraction and because sunrise and sunset are measured from the time that the edge of the Sun’s disk is on the horizon, rather than the center of the disk.
