The Solstices and Equinoxes are physical events that occur when the Earth is in specific positions on it's annual journey around the sun. To all intents and purposes, they occur instantaneously for everyone and the times in the above table are given to the nearest minute. There has to be a common point of reference so all times are given as Universal Time which is effectively Greenwich Mean Time (not corrected for summer Time).

NB: These are the actual times the solstices and equinoxes occur so if you are in a different time zone, you will need to add or subtract your time zone difference from Greenwich to the time given in the table and where necessary also correct for summer time in order to find what your local time will be when a particular event occurs.

Wow our two incense burners arrived this morning and they are fabulous, much nicer than the photos (large patterned), we are thrilled with them. One is for us and the other is an initiation gift for someone next week. Thanks so much for sending them so quick - they arrived the next day! Great service, great product. There seems to be a national shortage of decent large burners at the moment, none on ebay, none on Amazon or anywhere. Your shop was the only one who stocked them. Many thanks
