Today is the Spring Equinox, The hours of darkness and light are equal all around the world.
The Equinox is a precise moment, even though many cultures and esoteric groups celebrate it as a day long or evening event. The Equinox occurs at the exact moment the Sun crosses the
celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earths Equator).
The term equinox derives from the Latin words equus meaning equal and nox meaning night. 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.
While the September Equinox usually occurs on 22 September, it can also fall on 21 or 23 September. This difference is due to the slight inaccuracy of the Gregorian calendar and how it
defines a year, and the time it takes for the earth to complete its orbit around the sun.
