The First Day of Spring!
The¬†vernal equinox, officially bringing the arrival of spring, happens this evening.
Twice a year, around March 20 or 21 and September 22 or 23, the sun’s most direct rays shine on the equator. These two days are known as the vernal (spring) equinox and the autumnal (fall) equinox, respectively.
This year, the vernal equinox takes place on¬†Wednesday, March 20, at 5:58 p.m. EDT. At this time, the sun’s most direct rays cross¬†over from the southern hemisphere into the northern hemisphere. During this process, the sun is shining directly over the earth’s equator, bathing the earth’s northern and southern hemispheres in nearly an equal amount of sunlight.
