Do you find this puzzling in some way? Why were you asking your original question?? Maybe you were asking a different question that's lurking somewhere inside your question as posed? Feel free to elaborate. This isn't a quiz. :)
I'll rephrase my question. I don't understand how the sun can stay on the 23.4 N declination and be 90 degrees away from me and this equall 5400 nm. I'm thinking the 23.4 declination or latitude is a small circle, not a great circle and that there's fewer miles in a circle the further you go from the equator. But, I assume you will say the sun travels in a great circle. I'm having trouble comprehending this.
