The Equator

Uganda is one of the few countries in the world where the imaginary line divides the earth into two half passes. The Equator crosses into Uganda at a point situated 72km south of Kampala along the Kampala – Masaka road. “The equator”, simply said it is the imaginary line that divides the earth in half, with the north on one side and the south on another. At the Uganda Equator you observe this by a line drawn in the middle of the lane, with a monument on both sides that state “Uganda Equator” other than the fact that you can stand on both sides of the Equator there is also the opportunity to see an experiment of how water drains straight down at the Equator. But the water will drain clockwise on the northern hemisphere and counter clockwise on the southern hemisphere. This is something very exciting to see.

Wouldn’t it be an exploration to stand with one foot in the southern hemisphere and one foot on the northern hemisphere of the world?
