    Score one for Reed! :-)

    If you were to travel from the South Pole to the North Pole, you'd be going north. Even if you headed south from the Tropic of Capricorn, you'd still have to go north from the South Pole to reach the Arctic Circle.

    The Arctic Circle is north of the Tropic of Capricorn.
