The Equator The Equator

The Equator is a line of latitude that bisects the globe at its widest point, and where the hours of light and darkness are equal throughout the year. The Equator passes through 13 countries: Ecuador, Colombia, Brazil, Sao Tome & Principe, Gabon, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Maldives, Indonesia and Kiribati. At least half of these countries rank among the poorest in the world.
