What is the Spring equinox?
Spring equinox is another name for the equinox otherwise called vernal equinox and March equinox. An equinox is the minute in time (not a day-long occasion) when the Sun stands directly over the equator and day and night are of approximately equal length. For the Northern Hemisphere, the spring equinox is the minute when winter closures and spring starts, while for the Southern Hemisphere it is the minute when summer finishes and fall (autumn) starts.
In the Northern Hemisphere the spring equinox happens each year between March 19 and March 21. The dates depend on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which for reasonable objects is proportional to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). While the spring equinox happens at a similar minute in time everywhere throughout the world, the date and nearby time contrast here and there relying upon the year and an area’s time zone. For areas that are in front of UTC (further east) it might fall on the following day, and for areas that are behind UTC (further west) it might fall on the day preceding.
