The equinox and solstice day 2018
The spring and autumn equinox is an astronomical phenomenon, in which the day is equal to the night, they mark the change of the seasons. We know that the spring and autumn equinox comes at a time when our Sun in its yearly movement through the ecliptic crosses the celestial equator. These points respectively - are in the constellations of Pisces and Virgo. The vernal equinox day is the beginning of the astronomical spring.
In the days of the solstices, our daylight reaches the extreme points of its annual path across the sky - in summer it deviates 23.4 degrees north from the celestial equator, in winter 23.4 degrees south. Therefore, in June the Sun more illumines the northern hemisphere of the Earth - and at the time of the solstice here comes summer - and at the end of December - the southern, and we are at this time comes winter (and summer in the southern hemisphere).
