What is the March equinox?

The March equinox, also called northward equinox, is the moment in time (not a day-long event) when the Sun stands directly above the equator while crossing from the south to the north. For the Northern Hemisphere (where nearly 90% of the world's population live) it is the vernal equinox (spring equinox) as it is the moment when winter ends and spring begins, while for the Southern Hemisphere it is the autumn equinox (fall equinox), the moment when summer ends and autumn (fall) begins. Up until the March equinox the Sun rises and sets more to the south of the equator, and afterwards it rises and sets more to the north.

The March equinox occurs every year between March 19 and March 21. The dates given on this page are based on Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), which for practical purposes is equivalent to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT - the time zone of the United Kingdom). While the March equinox occurs at the same moment in time all over the world, the date and local time differ from place to place depending on the year and a location's time zone. For locations that are ahead of UTC (further east) it may fall on the day after, and for locations that are behind UTC (further west) it may fall on the day before.

The March equinox is one of four days with solar events (two equinoxes and two solstices) throughout the year that mark the beginning of a new season. The other days are the June solstice, the September equinox and the December solstice.
