Indeed, if you stand at the pole itself in the middle of summer, you can watch the sun go right round the sky, and it's well above the horizon the whole time. How does it do that? The sun seems to have a very strange orbit round the Earth.
The parallel of latitude 23°27 N of the equator, the northern boundary of the Torrid Zone, and the most northerly latitude at which the sun can shine directly overhead.
