Yo: it's Spring

And not a minute too soon, either…

Earth & Sky This is the March equinox, which arrives this afternoon or evening in the U.S. … and tomorrow for Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The March equinox happens at the same moment for all of us, around the world. It’s when the sun crosses the celestial equator, moving from south to north.

The exact time of this equinox is 12:07 a.m. universal time tomorrow. But the time on your clock will vary according to your time zone. On the day of an equinox, the sun rises due east and sets due west all around the world. Everyone receives approximately 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.

But you knew that already…

The real point is, if ever one can muster a sense of Hope, particularly after reading the news, today just might be the day. I’m going to wade through the snow at 8:07 (EDT) tonight, stand in the yard, take a deep breath and wish that the Earth’s Big Tilt is more than just physical.

Join me.
