Solstices occur when the earth is at one of the two farthest points away from the Sun in its orbit. They occur at the beginning of summer and at the beginning of winter. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, and the winter solstice is the shortest.
Equinoxes occur when the earth is at one of the two points closest to the Sun in its orbit, at the beginning of spring and fall. “Equinox” means equal night, meaning that on equinoxes the night is equally as long as the day.
