Google Doodle Spring Season 2021: The Spring Equinox, which occurs on the first day of the season, is a day when the lengths of the day and night are equal. The term equinox is derived from the Latin words for equal and night.
The Google Doodle for Saturday commemorates the start of Spring 2021 in the Northern Hemisphere.
Spring 2021 begins on March 20 and concludes on June 21. The Spring Equinox, which occurs on the first day of the season, is a day when the length of the day and night are equal. The term equinox is derived from the Latin words for equal and night. Night and day will be 12 hours long almost everywhere on the planet.
The Equinox is used to mark the change of seasons, as the light balance shifts to make days longer than nights. It heralds the end of the winter season and alerts people to the arrival of warmer weather.
The sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west on the day of the equinox. If you look in those directions at other times of the year, it appears off-center.
Every year, the equinoxes occur in March and September. The March equinox marks the moment in September when the sun crosses the celestial equator — the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator — from south to north.
This year’s Google Doodle celebrates the arrival of Spring 2021 with an animated hedgehog with flowers instead of spikes on its back. It also depicts honey bees buzzing around it, as well as red and blue flowers spelling out the word “Google.”
