The tropics is region of the Earth in which the Sun could be directly overhead. What is the corresponding region for the Moon? Is it the same or slightly larger?
I live in the UK and hence have to travel quite far to see the Sun directly overhead. If I am content to see the Moon directly overhead, would my trip be much shorter?
My experience suggests so. Once long ago, I travelled to India without flying. I "saw" the Moon directly overhead while in Iran and hence not yet in the Tropics. However, I had no way to accurately measure this and I may have mistaken the usually high (for me) Moon for being exactly overhead.
