Where is the only place in the world where the sun rises in the Pacific and sets in the Atlantic?
People in part of Panama can watch the sun rise over the Pacific and set over the Atlantic because of the curve of the isthmus. An isthmus is a narrow strip of land that connects two larger land areas usually with waterforms on either side. The Isthmus of Panama connects the continents of North and South America. The Panama Canal bisects the Isthmus of Panama, and connects the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
