Kuwaiti astronomer Khaled Al-Jamaan said on Monday that Kuwait will set a date for Saturday night with the equivalent of Saturday night, March 16, with 12 hours of daylight hours compared to the same number of night hours.
Al-Jamaan said in a statement to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the sunrise will be at 57: 5 and sunset at 5:05 pm, and the day will then start gradually increasing as the sense of daylight length is more noticeable than the previous days. He said that this coincides with the rise of the angle of the fall of the sun during this period, noting that the above is one of the causes of high temperatures during this period of the year.
He explained that the equality of night and day in Kuwait precedes the equator at four days, pointing out that their equality varies from region to region due to geographical location.
This phenomenon occurs twice in the first year only in March at the spring equinox and the second in September at the autumnal equinox and coincides with the end of the winter season in the northern hemisphere and the spring begins. He pointed out that what Kuwait witnessed during this period is a period of transition from one chapter to another, indicating that the difference of seasons due to rotation of the Earth around the sun during the year in orbit tends to the level of the equator ground at an angle of about 23.5, which is the same angle between the rotation axis of the earth around itself and axis Rotate around the sun.
He said the four chapters are related to astronomy and are also related to the orbit of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, which is classified in astronomy as the rotation of a celestial body around a star and the changes that occur on each.The rotation of the Earth around the Sun resulted in the transmission of sunlight in an apparent geostationary motion in both directions north and south, through the equator to reach the northern and southern ends of the Earth during certain periods of time.
He pointed out that during the annual rotation of the Earth around the sun orbits the solar radiation on the equator twice a year, one at the beginning of spring on March 20 and the second occurs at the beginning of the autumn on September 22, indicating that the sun deviates north to circulate throughout the cancer (latitude 5.23 North ).
He said that at the beginning of the summer on June 21 the sun is at the point of the summer solstice and also deviates southward at the winter solstice on December 21, where its rays run vertically along a latitude of 23.5 degrees south.
