2021 Spring Equinox In New Hampshire: Saturday, March 20 at 05:37 am (Eastern); 09:37 Greenwich.

by Anura Guruge


Happy Spring Equinox 2021.

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


I also share with you “Spring“.
In this case the ‘2021 Spring Festival Gala’ from China.

Please enjoy.


Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2021 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.

From, of course (where else), ‘timeanddate.com‘.

Yes, we are USED to the Spring Equinox being on March 20 (or 21).

It being on March 19 last year was EARLY.


As is my custom let me also please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring’
— Allegories of Spring a tradition
going back to at least the Renaissance.

Nature Pays Homage To The GSA Recognizing Joe Biden As President Elect — November 23, 2020.

by Anura Guruge



There is NO doubt at all, at all, Nature was delighted that 16-days after it was apparent the GSA has finally recognized Joe Biden as President Elect. This is a great day. It was quite the sunset to cap it. Thank you, ALL.

That was quite the sunset on what was a monumental day. First saw it through the window. Got in the car & drove about .75-mile to a slight rise to get these pictures.

It sure looked like nature was celebrating Biden’s victory.

Not as vividly red as it has been the last few days. That was the SMOKE from the fires out West.

Kind of a subdued sunset. Very peaceful. I enjoyed it. Hope you do too. Enjoy. SMILE.

‘Timeanddate.com’ “Night Sky” Feature Looks Extremely Promising & Mega Useful.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to get YOU there. SMILE.


Click to ENLARGE. The ‘Night Sky’ feature in action.


I have been a HUGE fan of ‘timeanddate‘ for years —  as long as I can remember. I rely on them extensively. They, like Wikipedia, is one of my key ‘goto’ resources. I endorse them whenever I can because they do such a great job.

Yesterday, when I was looking for sunrise/sunset times for the 2020 Summer Solstice I happen to see this NEW ‘Night Sky’ feature — supposedly still in beta. I gave it a quick spin. I didn’t have much time. Ditto again, just now. Again gave it a very quick spin. Looks GREAT. I know that they will NOT disappoint. A very competent & thorough outfit. I am thrilled. I will happily go to them for my night sky. I am excited. Thank YOU, ‘timeanddate’. Keep up the good work.
