You may hear of Equinox. Yes, it's happening today (Monday, September 23) at 10:50 am in Qatar. An equinox is a phenomenon that happens on our sky’s dome and a seasonal marker in Earth’s orbit around the sun. Scroll all the way down to learn more about this interesting topic.
Equinox is the instant of time when the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the sun. In other words, it is the moment at which the center of the visible sun is directly above the Equator, where both the Northern and Southern hemispheres will experience an equal amount of daylight and darkness.
This happens twice a year—one in March and one in September. The 20 March is known as vernal equinox that conventionally marks the beginning of spring, and the other one is on 23 September which is known as autumnal equinox and it marks the beginning of autumn.
It is a commonly asked question close to the Equinox and many people try to balance the egg on this date as Earth’s position relative to the sun. But can you really stand an egg on its tip in anywhere in the world on the Spring Equinox? Theoretically, if you are at a nail at the equator, you can balance! Many people traveling to Equador also try to experiment themselves but it seems it is not that easy!
However, we learned that the key egg-balancing tricks are finding an egg with a yolk centered in the shell, a little practice, and a lot of patience. So why don't you try yourself?
