Circle Of Latitude
A circle of latitude on Earth
Earth
is an abstract east–west circle connecting all locations around Earth
Earth
(ignoring elevation) at a given latitude. Circles of latitude are often called parallels because they are parallel to each other; that is, any two circles are always the same distance apart. A location's position along a circle of latitude is given by its longitude. Circles of latitude are unlike circles of longitude, which are all great circles with the centre of Earth

in the middle, as the circles of latitude get smaller as the distance from the Equator

increases. Their length can be calculated by a common sine or cosine function. The 60th parallel north

Fonualei (volcano)
Fonualei is an uninhabited 5 km2 volcanic island close to Vavaʻu
Vavaʻu
in the kingdom of Tonga. It was seen by Don Francisco Mourelle de la Rua on the La Princesa on 26 February 1781.[2] He reported the island to be barren from eruptions, and called it for that reason Amargura (Bitterness in Spanish). A major eruption in 1846, starting 11 June, destroyed much of the vegetation of Vavaʻu
Vavaʻu
and spread ash around for at least a year. Some sources claim that three other neighbouring volcanoes, Late, Tokū and another, erupted at the same time. This is probably a mistake by passing ships who misidentified the erupting island. The closest island to Fonualei is Tokū 19.7 km to the southeast.
