The Northern Hemisphere of the Earth is the half north of the equator. Close to 6.57 billion people occupy the Northern Hemisphere, which is about 88-90% of the Earth’s total population of 7.3 billion.

All the countries in the Middle East and Saharan Africa are in the Northern Hemisphere.

African countries in the Northern Hemisphere are Western Sahara, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Eritrea, Niger, Chad, Djibouti, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, Cameroon, Nigeria, Sudan, Ethiopia and the northern parts of Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, Gabon, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Congo Brazzaville.

Other countries also include Mexico, all of Central America and all of the countries in the West Indies. South American countries in the Northern Hemisphere are most of theColombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. Almost all of the northern parts of Brazil and Ecuador are also in the Northern Hemisphere.

Compared to Southern Hemisphere, more humans live in the Northern Hemisphere due to the fact that it has more land.

Due to the axial tilt of the Earth, winter in the Northern Hemisphere lasts from the winter solstice, (an astronomical phenomenon, which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year typically December 21 UTC) to the March Equinox (typically March 20 UTC), while summer lasts from the summer solstice (an astronomical phenomenon which occurs on the longest day of the year typically June 21 UTC) up to the autumnal equinox (typically September 23 UTC). The dates differ every year because of the variation between the calendar year and the astronomical year.

If viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, the Moon come out reversed or upturned compared to the view from the Southern Hemisphere. From the galactic center of the Milky Way, the North Pole faces away. Because of this, it results in the Milky Way being inadequate, blurred and dark in the Northern Hemisphere compared to the Southern Hemisphere, which makes the Northern Hemisphere more advisable and convenient for deep-space observation and study, as it is not “blinded” by the Milky Way.
