Happy Spring Equinox 2016.

As is my custom let me please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring‘.

[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

Polish Jerzy Siemiginowski-Eleuter (c. 1660 – c. 1711).

Thought to be British (Scottish) Arthur Henry Jenkins (1871 – 1940).

German Alexander Bruckmann (1806 – 1852).

German Johannes Kleinschmidt (1858 – 1905).

I also share with you, “Sunrise, Sunset”
from “Fiddler on the Roof“.

Please enjoy.

Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire up to/after the
March 20, 2016 Spring Equinox.

Notice that it is NOT EXACTLY 12 hours of sunlight on the Equinox.
That is mainly because we are so good at measuring time.
It has to do with the so called precession of the Earth’s axis.
Our rotation WOBBLES like a spinning top.
