Sun Time

Early people saw that the sun’s path changes but it seems to return to its starting point every 365 days. This long cycle became the solar year.

Sky watchers observed that the sun’s path crossed the equinox twice in each cycle. At the times when the sun rose and set on the Equator there was equal day and night for the whole planet (equinox).These days of equinox became fixing points for the earliest calendar makers.

The next important date after the equinox is the solstice.
