On this day the sun travels exactly overhead and cast almost no shadow of objects on the ground. The phenomenon occurs two times a year. This is because the sun rays hit the surface perpendicularly and your shadow will be totally beneath you which will make it look like there’s no shadow. This is observed as Zero Shadow Day (ZSD).
The day was observed at different times in different places around the world.
