52nd parallel north
File:Labrador boundary dispute.png
In Canada, the 52nd parallel north defines part of the border between Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador (line A), though Quebec maintains a dormant claim to some of the territory to the north of the parallel (line B).

The 52nd parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 52 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane. It crosses Europe, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America, and the Atlantic Ocean.

In Canada, part of the generally accepted border between Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador is defined by the parallel, though Quebec maintains a dormant claim to some of the territory north of this line.[1]

The catchment area of London, the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, can be broadly defined by the 51st and 52nd parallels.[citation needed]

At this latitude the sun is visible for 16 hours, 44 minutes during the summer solstice and 7 hours, 45 minutes during the winter solstice.[2]
