An equinox occurs twice a year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor toward the Sun, and both hemispheres experience approximately twelve hours of daylight and twelve hours of night. There are two equinoxes each year, around 20 March and 23 September.

An equinox is a moment when the axis of the Earth is tilted neither towards or away from the Sun and its northern and southern hemispheres are equally illuminated. There are two equinoxes every year, one in March and one in September.

An equinox is the moment in which the sun is directly above the equator, and a solstice is the moment in which the sun is farthest away from the equator. There are two equinoxes and two solstices each year, one in the spring and one in the fall.
