The September Equinox is here, learn what it is
The equinox occurs because the earth moves in two different ways. First, it spins on its polar axis, a line through the north and south poles, causing the alternation of day and night every day and secondly, it moves in its orbit around the sun once in every 365.25 days. The equinox occurs when these two motions intersect.
Equinoxes do not occur on the same day every year. Generally, it occurs about 6 hours later each year, with a jump of a day (backwards) on leap years. The dates for 2016 equinoxes are: March 20 and September 22.
