The exact time the sun will cross the equator on its southbound journey this Equinox is Monday, September 23rd, at 07:50 UTC. Novasutras will hold an Equinox meditation focusing on climate and forest well-being, with an in-person meditation in Santa Cruz about 12 hours before the moment of the Equinox.
