Spring is Just Around the Corner
March 20 is the Vernal, or Spring, Equinox, the beginning of astronomical spring.
Equinox is derived from the Latin words that mean "equal night." The equinoxes are the two days each year when the middle of the Sun is an equal amount of time above and below the horizon for every location on Earth. In other words the sun would be directly over the Equator.
In the southern hemisphere, the Autumnal Equinox occurs at the same time as our Vernal Equinox.
