An equator was an imaginary line that was equidistant from the poles and perpendicular to a planet or star's axis of rotation. This line divided the astronomical body into two hemispheres, the northern and the southern.

On July 2nd 1937, trying to fly around Earth, Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, took off from New Guinea abord an airplane, and they were headed east around the equator, but they vanished somewhere in the South Seas. (VOY: "The 37's")
