Goodbye winter: When and when exactly does spring 2022 begin | technology

This Thursday, September 22, specifically at 10:04 p.m. in Chile, the spring season officially begins, leaving behind the last 3 months of winter and preparing for the summer to come. It should be noted that this is due to the astronomical phenomenon of the equinox, which marks the beginning of autumn in the northern hemisphere.

Like a déjà-vu, certain patterns repeat themselves every year at this time, allowing us to enjoy the weather; the time change, the national holidays; and now, the equinox that gives the beginning of spring.

It should be noted that in the southern hemisphere we say goodbye to winter after three months, on the northern side of the planet they begin to say goodbye to the summer season.

When and when does spring 2021 begin?

According to the Chilean Navy Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service (SHOA) Spring begins next Thursday, September 22nd.

The moment will be marked by the so-called vernal equinox, which will occur specifically at 10:04 p.m. in Chile.

But what about the vernal equinox? It is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the sun travels from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere, crossing the equator line and causing the day to be the same length as the night.

In other words, on this day the daylight hours are practically the same as at night.

This is because the Earth’s axis is slightly tilted with respect to the plane of translation around the Sun, and therefore the light from the star does not reach all points of the planet equally.

In this sense, the southern part of the earth will have the spring, while the countries of the northern hemisphere, such as the United States or the European continent, will have the beginning of autumn.
