Solstice And Equinox ¬†2010 – 2020
A solstice is a galactic event that happens twice each year when the Sun accomplishes its most bewildering position in the sky as seen from the North or South Pole. The maxim solstice is gathered from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still).
The day of the solstice is either the “longest day of the year” (in summer) or the “briefest day of the year” (in winter) for anyplace on Earth, since the time of time between sunrise and dusk on that day is the yearly most fabulous or slightest for that place.
An equinox happens twice a year (around 20 March and 22 September), when the tilt of the Earth’s turn is inclined not a long way from or towards the Sun, the center of the Sun being in the same plane as the Earth’s equator.
The name “equinox” is dead set from the Latin aequus (proportional) and nox (night), subsequent to around the equinox, the night and day have harshly comparable length.
