(Painted by Laili / Tianshannet)

Spring Equinox, Chunfen(春分) in Chinese, is the 4th solar term and signals the equal length of the day and night time. This year, it starts on March 20th and ends on April 5th.

On the day of Spring Equinox, the sun will be directly above the equator. After the equinox, the sun moves northwards, resulting in longer daytime in the Northern Hemisphere and longer night in the Southern Hemisphere gradually.
