Asked in Seasons
What two seasons have the days with equal day and 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 length of daylight and night time are equal through the year on the what?
There is no place on earth where the relative lengths of day and night don't change through the year. Our guess is that you're thinking of the Equator. The equator is the line on which the variations in day/night during the year are the smallest; but they still change, even on the equator. Here's what happens on the equator: March 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hours March 21 - June 21: Day shrinking, night growing. June 21 - September 21: Day growing, night shrinking September 21: Day/night equal. 12 hours / 12 hours September 21 - December 21: Day shrinking, night growing. December 21 - March 21: Day growing, night shrinking.
Asked in Astronomy
What place do not have winter and summer solstice?
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.

Asked in The Moon, Astronomy, Seasons
During which period are days longer than nights at any place which is in the north of the equator?
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.

Asked in Astronomy, Meteorology and Weather
What is the weather like in the summer solstice?
There is no single answer to that, as it would depend on where in the world you are. Being the summer solstice, you would expect the weather to be quite good, but in some parts of the world the summer solstice might not be a good day in some years. It would differ from place to place and year to year.
