Spring Equinox 2019

Spring Equinox 2019

March 20, 2019, marks the spring equinox — the first official day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This day is unique in that the length of day and night is close to equal.

What is Vernal Equinox?

The Vernal Equinox is a solar term with great balance. At the equinox, earth’s two hemispheres are receiving the sun’s rays equally.

On the day of the vernal equinox, night and day are often said to be equal in length.

The equinox is the moment in Earth’s orbit when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator.

It means longer and warmer days as the northern hemisphere begins to tilt towards the sun.

Festivals around the Equinox:

The vernal equinox also is the Persian New Year, known as Nowruz. For more than 300 million people worldwide it’s the start of a month long celebration of new beginnings.

In Chichen Itza, Mexico, thousands gather at the Kulkulkan pyramid. In the late afternoon, the sun creates a shadow that looks like a snake sliding down the northern staircase.
