Equinoxes and solstices mark the change of seasons, but they mean different things and occur at different times

There are only two equinoxes that happen in a year – autumnal (fall) and vernal (spring) – and they happen when the earth’s subsolar point passes through the equator, according to National Geographic.

The autumn equinox will arrive in the U.S. at 9:04 EDT on Sept. 22, 2022.

“The equinoxes are the only time when both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres experience roughly equal amounts of daytime and nighttime,” the nature magazine reports.
