At Summer Solstice, the ecliptic great circle upon Earth would touch the latitude small circle 23.4 deg N at noon location, and the same time, touch 23.4 deg S circle at antipodal midnight location.


The ecliptic great circle is across the latitude circles 23.4 S and 23.4 N.The equator is central for 0 deg latitude. The ecliptic circle is in the orbital plane of the Earth..
