An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day 22 of September, repeating indefinitely
When: September 22 or 23
First occurrence: Since Earth’s
The Earth orbits around the Sun, but also wobbles a little around its own axis. This cause the light of the Sun to fall on Earth
very differently around the year.When the Earth’s axis is perpendicular to the Sun’s rays,
then the days are about equally as long as the nights. This happens twice a year and we call this
the March Equinox and the September Equinox. Also known as the beginning of fall and spring, depending on if you live on the Northern or Southern
part of the hemisphere.From here the Earth will tilt again
and when it’s fully tilted we have reached December Solstice or June Solstice. This is visible in having either the longest night of the
year or the longest day of the year.
This, again, depends on which side of the Hemisphere you live.
The September Equinox is on the Northern Hemisphere
seen as the center of many harvest festivals. It is celebrated as a main harvest festival in the form of Chuseok in Korea, Mid-Autumn Festival in China, Autumnal Equinox Day in Japan
and Mabon among neo-pagans.
