I also share with you, “The Beauty of Spring”.

Please enjoy.

Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2017 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.
