The new Tropic of Cancer latitude circle, with latitude $= {50}^{o} N$

Explanation:

As of now, it is along the latitude $\left(\theta\right)$ circle called the Tropic

of Cancer, $\theta = {23.4}^{o}$, nearly.

So, this Tropic of Cancer would be along

$\theta = {50}^{o}$, when the tilt angle changes to ${50}^{o}$.come
