When is Sunset
When does the sun rise and when does it set?
The sunrise and sunset occurs depending on the movements of the Earth and the sun. When the Earth revolves around itself, it occurs day and night. First, because the eastern surface of the Earth sees the sun, the sun rises from the east. As the sun sets in the east, the sun rises in the west and the day begins. Half of the Earth is day, the other half is night.
The calculation of sunrise and Sunset Times is explained by meridians. Meridians are the name given to imaginary circles that cut the Earth vertically. Another name is longitude.
The imaginary lines that cross the Earth in parallel are also called parallel (latitude). The line that is assumed to pass through the middle of the Earth is also called the equator. When the sun's rays fall perpendicular to the equator, day and night equality occurs. March 21 September is called the Spring Equinox and September 23 is called the autumn equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. March 21 September is named as the Autumn Equinox and September 23 as the spring equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. This is because the southern hemisphere is experiencing the winter season, while the northern tomorrow is experiencing the summer season in the sphere. This is related to the angles of the sun's rays falling to latitudes. Other than these dates, the nights are longer than the days, while the days may be longer than the nights.
