 +===== Equinox =====
 +
 +An equinox occus when the suns light is directly above the equator. This happens twice per year - once when the suns position on earth is moving south (Southern Hemispher summer, Northern Hemisphere winter) and once when the suns position on earth is moving north.
 +
 +Viewed from space an equinox has half the earth fully in light and half fully in dark. As the sun moves south, there is more shadow in the north, or as it moves north there is more shadow in the south.
