    Re: Equinoxes: when Lon=0 (or 180) but not when Dec=0?

    Thank you to all commented.

    The Herbert Prinz's article from eleven years ago did clarify it all.

    Most interesting was to learn that the plane of Earth's orbit wobbles within ~1 arcsecond of its' mean position (I did not know by how much it does deviate, is it degrees or minuscule fraction of a second), also interesting was to see the time difference between all the relevant events (RA==0°, Dec==0° and Lon==0°).

    Warm regards,

    Tony
