Spring came to Azerbaijan today at 19:33, APA reports.
Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory named after Tusi says that day and night become equal at this time.
The sun, moving along the ecliptic, passes from the southern hemisphere to the northern one, and from that moment spring begins in the northern hemisphere.
Note that the spring season in the Northern Hemisphere will last until June 21. On June 21 at 13.13 summer time will come. In this case, the Earth's axis of rotation forms the smallest angle with the direction of the Sun, or the Sun is at its maximum height above the horizon at noon (73⁰.1). This day will be the longest day and the shortest night. The duration of the day will be 15 hours 3 minutes 24 seconds, nights - 8 hours 56 minutes 36 seconds.
