I came across this article and I would like to clarify a few moments:

if you're located north of the Tropic of Cancer, the Sun will always appear south of the zenith.

Does it mean if I am located north of the Tropic of Cancer and I point a compass to the Sun at noon, the Sun will alway be in south.

And the same for the Tropic of Capricorn:

if you're somewhere south of the Tropic of Capricorn, the Sun appears to be always north of the zenith

If I am located south of the Tropic of Capricorn and I point a compass to the Sun at noon, the Sun will alway be in north.
