Anywhere around the equator, the days and nights are always about equal.
-- The December solstice, for every place north of the equator. -- The June solstice, for every place south of the equator.
Any place on earth that lie on the equator will have equal day and night time.
Consider any point in the equatorial circle.This point or the place selected will move as the earth rotates.It complete one circle in 24 hours and will remain in sunlight and darkness for 12 hours each.Thus the duration of day and night at any place on the equator is equal.
Long Day's journey into Night
On the vernal and autumnal equinoxes, the hours of day and night are about equal in every place in the world. These dates are on approximately September 23rd and March 21st so during Spring and Fall. Since the Sun's direct rays hit the Earth's equator on these days, the length of hours that every place in the world receives as day and night are equal because the equator is at the center of Earth's longitude lines. I hope this answers your question.
The latitude of a place is the angle from the Earth's equator north or south to that place.
There is no place on earth where the relative lengths of day and night don't changethrough the year.Our guess is that you're thinking of the Equator. The equator is the line on which thevariations in day/night during the year are the smallest; but they still change, even onthe equator.Here's what happens on the equator:March 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hoursMarch 21 - June 21: Day shrinking, night growing.June 21 - September 21: Day growing, night shrinkingSeptember 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hoursSeptember 21 - December 21: Day shrinking, night growing.December 21 - March 21: Day growing, night shrinking.
Places that are close to the equator do not experience much change in the amount of daylight and darkness there is throughout the year. So while the solstices are happening in those parts of the world, they do not experience any major differences. The further you get from the equator and the closer you get to the poles, the more noticeable the effect of a solstice is.
No place. On the winter solstice, the Sun's rays are at least 24 degrees from the vertical."Winter" means that the Sun is in the other hemisphere; so if you are in the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice is when the Sun is 23.5 degrees SOUTH of the equator.
In the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice takes place in December. In the southern hemisphere, the winter solstice takes place in June.
That would be the equator.
No place on Earth always has equal day and night hours. At the equinoxes ("equal night"), Vernal and Autumnal, the beginnings of Spring and Autumn, the whole Earth has equal day and night hours.
Outdoors, at night, under clear skies, on a mountaintop near the equator is. The thing about the equator is that ALL constellations are visible from there.
On the spring of fall equinox, the sun rises directly in the east, and sets directly in the west, and the day is the same length as night. Between the spring and fall equinox, the sun is out for the majority of the day, and out the longest on the summer solstice. In reverse, the sun is out the least between the fall and spring equinox, and the least amount of daylight is on the winter solstice.
The farthest place north of the equator from the equator is the North Pole.
Assuming the weather is the same in a place near the equator and far from the equator, the temperature at the place closer to the equator will generally be warmer.
There is no latitude on earth at which the sun would be directly overhead at noon on the equinox and the solstice.
There's no place on Earth where the sun is ever overhead at night. The sun is overhead at some point on the equator at some moment on a day near March 21 and another day near September 21, every year.
The equator is 0 degrees latitude, but any longitude from 0 to 180, either east or west, is possible. To find the longitude of the place on the equator, measure the angle along the equator, between the place, and the point where the Prime Meridian crosses the equator.
The closer a place is to the equator, the warmer it usually is. The equator divides the earth into northern and southern hemispheres.
It can tell you the angle on the surface of the Earth between the equator and that place, and also the approximate altitude of Polaris above the Northern horizon as seen from that place at any hour on a clear night.
The equator passes through many places, all of which are "the closest to the equator."
The summer solstice.
There is no such place as "east of the equator". The equator circles the entire Earth from east to west.
The Summer Solstice took place on Sunday, June 21, 2009at 5:46 Universal Time.
