Description: A diagram of the earth at the March equinox. During the March and September equinox, "the sun is exactly over the equator; hence the sunlight extends to the same distance on both sides of the equator, or to both poles. As the earth rotates in this position the sun rises and sets at six o'clock, and the days and nights are everywhere of equal length; hence these days are called equinoxes (equal nights). The days and nights are always of equal length on the equator, but elsewhere, except at the equinoxes, they are never equal." — Redway, 1901, p. 23.
