Solstice & Equinox

I love it when words are awesome in look, sound, and meaning.

Granted, I'm an astronomy dork, but I feel like your general star and planet jargon is just full of great ones: vernal, autumnal, zenith, nadir, eclipse, ecliptic, zodiac, revolution, meridian...exceptional words, all of 'em.

Way to go, ancestors.
