What is the Spring Equinox and why does it appear on the doodle today?


O spring equinox, which arrives on Wednesday March 20 at 15:58, was carried out in a doodle in Google, at the beginning of the season in the planet's northern hemisphere.

O doodle shows the drawing of a planet on a black background, which has a smiling face and admires a rose that grows well on the tip of the head, which, in turn, is part of the word Google.

It should be noted that the equinox is the astronomical event where day and night have the same duration; where the Earth is located right in the middle of the balance it makes in relation to its orbit around the Sun.

According to the UNAM, is so called because the duration of day and night is equal; instead, in the Winter Solstice the permanence of the night is greater and, on the contrary, in the summer solstice, the duration of the day is greater than that of the night.

By mentioning the important events related to the Sun that mark the seasons, UNAM highlights the summer and winter solstices and the spring equinoxes and fall, because the Earth is not perpendicular to the plane of its orbit.

Thus, because the axis of rotation of the planet is inclined at about 23.4 degrees relative to its orbit, it is possible to perceive that the Sun never peers from the same place on the horizon and, thanks to this, there are four climatic seasons.

O equinox occurs twice a year: spring, March 20 at 15:58, when the sun forms an axis perpendicular to the equator from north to south, and the autumn, to meet again with the southern Ecuador to the north.

In the Mesoamerican calendar, spring equinox it was more than a change of season; since for the Maya, this astronomical event meant planning the sowing.

It was related to the Renaissance because it marked the beginning of the growing season and the greening of nature; while autumn indicated the time of harvest.
