On the equinox, night and day are nearly
exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over
the world. This is the reason it's called an
"equinox", derived from Latin, meaning "equal
night". The March equinox occurs the
moment the sun crosses the celestial equator
– the imaginary line in the sky above the
Earth’s equator – from south to north. This
will happen on March 20, 2014. There are two
equinoxes every year – in March and
September – when the sun shines directly on
the equator and the length of day and night is
nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either
side of the equator, so the equinox in March
Mardi Gras parade fun! is also known as the SPRING EQUINOX in
the northern hemisphere. March 20, 2014 is
the Spring Equinox and the first day of SPRING!
