Autumnal equinox egg balance

Can You Balance Eggs on End During the Spring Equinox?  As the angle of the earth's inclination toward the sun changes throughout the year, lengthening or shortening the days according to season and hemisphere, there are two times annually when day and night are of more-or-less equal length: the spring and autumnal equinoxes. These celestial tipping points have been observed for thousands of years.

Is this really true?? There's a myth going around saying this balancing act is possible only on the vernal or autumnal equinox, approx. Sept. 21 and Mar. 21. Anyone know for sure??

According to experts, on the Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox, the day and night are of equal time both in the southern and northern hemispheres. The earth's axis, on its 66.5 degree tilt, is in a relative balance of power with the earth's orbit around the sun. Thus it is a very conducive time for standing eggs on end.
