The 32nd parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 32 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane. It crosses Africa, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America and the Atlantic Ocean.

In the United States, the parallel defines part of the border between New Mexico and Texas. It was the proposed route of the Texas Pacific Railroad.[citation needed]

From 27 August 1992 to 4 September 1996, the parallel defined the limit of the southern no-fly zone in Iraq. It was then moved to the 33rd parallel north.[1]

At this latitude the sun is visible for 14 hours, 15 minutes during the summer solstice and 10 hours, 3 minutes during the winter solstice.[2]
