Meaning & Definition Of Equinox
Equinox means the time when the sun is directly over the equator. It occurs twice a year, around March 21 and September 23.
- The word equinox comes from Latin and means “equal night” or “equal day”. This is because during an equinox, both days and nights are of equal length.
- A solar equinox is a moment in time when the Sun crosses the Earth’s equator, which is to say, appears directly above the equator (rather than north or south of the equator). On the day of the equinox, the Sun appears to rise “due east” and set “due west”. This occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September
