Spring Equinox

Equinox roughly translates to ‘equal night’ in Latin, a mixture between the words aequus (equal) and nox (night). The Spring Equinox signifies the first day of spring, blooming through the cracks after a long winter. But what is an Equinox?

What is an Equinox?

A Vernal Equinox happens when the sun falls directly above the equator, causing both day and night to be equal in length. In most places on Earth (the north pole and equator excluded), every day has been getting longer since the Winter Solstice. After spring officially begins, the world will see more daylight than darkness in our days. The days gradually grew in length until the Summe solstice in June.
