Standing on the Prime Meridian

The line that separates east and west

I'm visiting the Royal Observatory Greenwich, where the Greenwich Meridian is located. It became the Prime Meridian (0ยฐ longitude) 130 years ago, in 1884.

I've visited this place before, but it feels fresh every time. Maybe it's because I come here every decade or so.
