What is a Vernal equinox? Vernal equinox is a phenomenon of nature phenomenon that takes place every year and on that day , both day and night. This occurs because the Earth’s axis is inclined not incline away from or even toward the Sun, but infact, the Sun sits vertically above the equator.
The Vernal Equinox does not affect the new Daylight Savings Time in anyway and only creates an equal day.
An equinox takes place twice a year. According to Wikipedia: “An equinox happens each year at two specific moments in time (rather than two whole days), when there is a location on the Earth’s Equator where the centre of the Sun can be observed to be vertically overhead, occurring around March 20/21 and September 22/23 each year.”
So get ready to enjoy a pleasant Spring 2010!
