The sun is directly overhead in Barbados twice a year, my guess is approx 5-6th May and 5-6th August. What are the exact dates?

    $\begingroup$ Find the latitude of the Barbados (or where-ever) and see when the sun's declination is equal to that latitude using something like HORIZONS: ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/horizons/app.html or WebGeoCalc wgc.jpl.nasa.gov:8443/webgeocalc/#NewCalculation or any astronomy software $\endgroup$ Aug 15, 2022 at 12:11

    $\begingroup$ A more general question (which might already have an answer) is "how do I compute on which days, if any, the Sun is overhead at a given location?" $\endgroup$ Aug 15, 2022 at 12:14
