Spring Equinox 2017 in Warrenpoint
The Spring Equinox occurred today – 20 March 2017 at 10.28 am!
The Equinox is all to do with the tilt of the Earth to the Sun.
In Summertime, we are tilted toward the sun and as a result we get longer days because the sun shines for longer on our part of the world.
The Spring Equinox marks the day when we have the same length of daylight and night time.
The word Equinox is a Latin word meaning “equal night”
This marks the time of year when our days will get longer and nights shorter.
We will have longer days right up to the Summer Solstice on June 2016.
